The Likoni Member of Parliament, Mishi Mboko has called on President Uhuru Kenyatta to have current corruption cases concluded and public resources stolen recovered.
Speaking in Mombasa on Saturday during Madaraka Day Celebrations, Mishi called on the President to change the corruption narrative to tangible action against culprits.
She said Kenyans want to hear how much money has been recovered and brought back to the country to fund programs that have stalled due to lack of funds. “That is the kind of actions we want,” she said.
“It’s time for a different narrative. We want to be told the names of people responsible for looting public resources and the punishment handed to them,” Said Mishi
“The stolen resources hidden in foreign countries could be used to buy drugs for hospitals, books for our children and making roads to facilitate transport of farm produce for our farmers to the market,” she added.
Mishi warned against a ‘plot’ to close down a University Campus in Mombasa due to lack of enough students, saying this will be a big blow to coastal people.
“We are against the plot to close the university since it is a well-established national public institution that has
produced some of the brilliant minds in the country and the coastal region.
If the institution must close some of its branches, she added, it should be in other places but not Mombasa since the region does not have enough institutions of higher learning.
