Miguna Miguna has weighed in on the upcoming presidential election in the 2017 general poll. He publicly revealed his view in a TV interview, saying President Uhuru might not retain his office as he probably would be booted home come next year.
According to him, should the president not take adequate care, there might be violence that will kick him out of State House. And, Miguna added, if this happens, the president will never step into the State House again.
If president Uhuru does not do something radical and I mean really radical, blood must flow and must flow quite rapidly and he will not see state house again. That is a fact.
When asked if he is implying President Uhuru will only be a one time president, he said
His re-election will depend on whether or not he fights corruption, not about development or other things. It is about corruption which is sucking up most of the development money.
Miguna made reference to the reports of illegal trade in sugar and charcoal by the Kenya Defence Forces, and blamed governing institution of being a part of corruption.
His accusation nets in the report that disclosed KDF is allegedly connected in a $400 million (Sh41 billion) sugar and charcoal smuggling business that funds al Shabaab militants in Somalia.
He raised this concern saying:
Institutions of governance have broken down… police, intelligence and the military. You heard of ‘white and black done’ by Journalists for Justice?
When you go the judiciary, the government and the devolved government, the looting spree is unprecedented.
Miguna noted that soon corruption cases will end just like the usual adage “nothing lasts forever” only if Kenyans will elect the Moses of their time.
He also commented about running for governor in the 2017 general poll and said Nairobi’s Evans Kidero will not stay in office.
The ex-CORD leader’s adviser further said, voters sometimes taste new waters by voting for new leaders and it rubs those in power on the wrong side. For that reason, those in office battle tooth and nail to see they are not thrown out of their seats.
Sometimes they try but these leaders conspire against them. The cartels are the ones that we are taking to Kamiti Maximum Security Prison, and I think we should.
He spoke on corruption in the election process adding that people with money influence results with their loaded pockets.
His statement on KTN’s Jeff Koinange Live show on Wednesday reads:
I may be in one of these races. If Kenyans are ready to wake up they could easily elect me,”they looted and have money I do not have.
Miguna went on to rail at ex Devolution Cabinet Secretary, Anne Waiguru, who might be running to become Nairobi Governor in 2017, saying
Come, baby, come.
Let her come and bring the money that disappeared. Come, baby, come. I know Kidero is going home, take my word… remember today… What is the date? Remember this next year [sic].
Those seeking JAP’s ticket include ex-Starehe MP Margaret Wanjiru, Dagoretti South MP Dennis Waweru, Senator Mike Sonko, Kidero and Harun Mwau.
