Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi has shredded renowned economist David Ndii’s economic tactics into pieces after terming them as total guesswork.
The well-known political analyst took to Twitter to call out Ndii while describing him as an intellectual prostitute who times and again has been advising the losing team.
“It is not a tragedy that a Kikuyu psycho like David Ndii has now become an intellectual prostitute. The tragedy is this: he has always advised the team that loses,” Ngunyi said.
He added that asking a liberal economist to write a Marxist strategy is like asking a dentist to do heart surgery as it would result in total guesswork.
Nyunyi’s reaction comes after Deputy President William Ruto held a three-day consultative meeting over the weekend at the Maasai Mara lodges.
The meeting to reportedly to deliberate on the economic plans for the country ahead of the 2022 general elections with a section of Mt Kenya politicians and renowned economists, including Ndii, where he presented his economic agenda for 2022.
DP William Ruto has been busy recently as he tried to come up with a team of the political elite who are working on helping him ascend to power in the 2022 general elections.
Apart from Ndii, others include former Central Bank Governor Njuguna Ndung’u, former Cabinet Secretary Davis Chirchir, and Prof Larry Gumbe, a former ally of Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga.
Previously in a local media station, Ndii explained why he decided to join the second in command ahead of the general elections.
He said that the two have common grounds and the first thing is they have to defend the country’s Constitution while the second thing is the country must have a free and fair election, come 2022.
He pointed out that the country faces a serious problem and indeed it is a fundamentally political problem, and that is an electoral failure.
He added that on some of the things, it does not matter what someone’s history is.
On Monday 3, Ndii faced the wrath of Kenyans after he suggested that leaders implicated in the past corruption cases should be forgiven.
He said that it is time for the country to start talking about drawing a line between someone’s past corruption cases and his current state.
