Kenya: Jamleck Tells Raila, Kalonzo to Come Clean On Their Land

Nairobi Metropolitan minister Jamleck Kamau has called on Prime Minister Raila Odinga and his running mate Kalonzo Musyoka to explain how they acquired huge chunks of land in Nairobi and Ukambani.

Kamau said it is hypocritical for the Cord leaders to blame Jubilee presidential candidate Uhuru Kenyatta yet they have not come clean on their own land. Raila has in recent days been addressing rallies in which he alludes to the large tracts of land that he alleges Uhuru owns.

He has suggested that Uhuru should donate some of the land to landless Kenyans before he becomes president. Kamau said Kenyans are not interested in the size of the land one owns but the economic activities being undertaken in those properties and the

Cord leaders should address "real issues" instead of politicising a sensitive. Kamau was speaking in Gatundu South constituency where he led a Jubilee team to campaign for Uhuru Kenyatta.

He said the Jubilee manifesto is the best since it caters for the youth and women and is the blueprint which will deliver Kenya from the myriad of problems that have affected it since independence.

Kamau was accompanied by Assistant Minister Lee Kinyanjui, Kiambu governor candidate William Kabogo and his running mate Gerald Gakuha Githinji, women's representative aspirant Anna Nyokabi, Kericho senator aspirant Charles Keter, former Keiyo South MP Jakson Kiptanui and Gatundu South TNA aspirant Jossy Ngugi.
