Hon. Beth Mugo, Minister for Health and Sanitation told a jubilee rally at Uhuru Park that Raila Odinga is not fit to be president because of the flying toilets menance in Kibera, the Hon minister may have forgotten that the issue of Jiggers and Flying toilets is a sanitation issue under her docket.
The Minister has abdicated her duty of providing funding and encouraging construction toilets in Kibera, the ministry officials- public health officers should advice residents in her native home Gatundu and elsewhere how to eliminate jiggers that have infested appendage and genitals of males and females of adults and children in the area.
Mrs Mugoâ€™s utterances were at best empty rhetoric; many Kenyans expressed disgust on social media, here is one of the many comments
“Our attention has been drawn by Hon. Beth Mugo’s sanitary attack on Hon. PM Raila, that the endemic cholera cases are due to the laters failure to construct toilets in Kibera. This is a case of the kettle calling the pot black! Why? Hon Beth Mugo is the Minister for Health and Public Sanitation who should actually, budget, fund, construct and supervise these public amenities! So it was neither politically correct nor mentally sound for her to fly the toilet failure bags in the Jubilee Rally on live TV! Besides, we have jiggers infesting people limbs and genitals in Kiambu, Murang’a, Kirinyaga, Naivasha among other Jubilee Presidential candidate constituency and stronghold. Who takes responsibility if not the same Hon. Uhuru and his cousin Beth Mugo in the failed Ministry?Â We sympathize that she is just recovering from cancer as the Minister of health and we in CORD wish her quick recovery to come and witness the final liberation and swearing of Hon. Raila Odinga. Good day, peace and love in KenyaÂ´Â´!
