Orengo reveals one thing Kibaki did that no other president might be able to do

Renowned lawyer and Siaya Senator James Orengo praised former president Mwai Kibaki as one of the best presidents the country has ever had.

Orengo was speaking during a parliamentary meeting on the 28th of July 2020.

The senator applauded Kibaki and further added that other presidents might not be able to live up to his legacy. According to him, the former president made himself available to other leaders during his reign.

“The thing that president Kibaki did, probably no other president will be able to do it. I am not ashamed to say that.”

Orengo also went ahead to advise President Uhuru to be more accessible. According to him, that is the only way that legislators can solve some of Kenya’s issues.

He further blamed Uhuru for some of the country’s woes, seeing he does not make himself accessible to other leaders.

I am not afraid.

Orengo also added that his sentiments are not personal, instead, they are for the good of the whole country. He further said that he is not afraid or ashamed to admit that president Kibaki was a good leader.

“I am advising the current president to be more accessible for us to be able to solve these problems. We would not have been here if he had been more accessible. I am telling you without being afraid. I am not saying it for me, I am saying it for the country.”

Other legislators cheered Orengo on as he went on praising Kibaki and his legacy.

This debate found its way to Twitter, where netizens made the topic trend under the hashtag #Kibaki. You can follow the Twitter trend here.

Netizens praised former president Kibaki acknowledging that he built the economy during his wear. According to some netizens, the economy is far worse at the moment compared to his time.

While Kibaki was sworn in as president in 2002, he promised to rebuild Kenya’s economy in his speech.

“You have asked me to lead this nation out of the present wilderness and malaise onto the promised land. And I shall. I shall offer a responsive, transparent, and innovative leadership. I am willing to put everything I have got into this job because I regard it as a sacred duty,” Kibaki promised.
