Will Uhuru also demolish Mzee Moi’s property? Mutahi Ngunyi

Mutahi Ngunyi's message to Uhuru

Ngunyi opined that the arrest of high-profile suspects and demolish of buildings built on riparian land was misguided and ill-advised.

The political analyst said that President Kenyatta was unlikely to go all the way in dealing with his “friends and relatives” involved in corruption.

“Uhuru will have to demolish hotels and property owned by his friends, but will he do it? I doubt it. If he has taken the holier-than-though attitude, he should demolish houses owned by the poor man and those owned by the privileged Moi or the Kibaki families,” the analyst stated in his weekly video column.

“Uhuru should not rely on the public that is cheering him. They will cheer him today and hate him tomorrow…If we embrace this culture of razzmatazz and Walhalla, a culture of sending bulldozers and cameras for the nation to feast on, we will be creating a war economy,” the analyst warned.

Ngunyi's hypothesis came at a time when the President has expressed support for several operations widely seen as dealing a blow to corruption.

Buildings in Nairobi have been demolished after they were found to have been built on riparian land where evictions are ongoing in the Mau Forest.

Despite the President's promise to spare no one, former President Daniel arap Moi has not been evicted from Mau Forest where he operates Kiptagich Tea Factory - sitting on more than two thousand acres.
