Davidmulusaking: The start of downfall for Uhuru
+254-72258**: Charity begins at home. Has he ever build any economy leave alone recovering? He has always been a kingpin of Luo Nyanza but the area has lagged behind in economic development. Kibra CDF never shined during his long stay as the area mp. African envoy of infrastructure who has no infrastructure development agenda. Nothing to show as achievement during his tenure as pm. No roads constructed during his tenure as roads minister. Power outages were order of the day during his tenure as minister for energy.
