DAILY POST: Young people are thieves and looters that’s why I appointed 91-year old MOODY AWORI back to Government – UHURU mocks the youth



Thursday December 6, 2018 – President
Uhuru Kenyatta has defended his decision to appoint former Vice President
Moody Awori to an oversight board to manage the Sports, Art and Social Development
Fund saying it is good for Kenya.
Speaking
during a graduation ceremony for Kenya Commercial Banks 2Jiajiri initiative, Uhuru told off those criticizing the
appointment of the 91-year old ex-VP, saying unlike most young people who want
to get rich quickly and end up looting the public coffers, Moody is not corrupt.
He
noted that corruption was in his mind when he chose Mr. Moody Awori over others
and that he has no apologies to make.
“I’m
being criticized that I am appointing a 91-year-old to look after the Youth
Sports Fund.”
“But
put yourself in my shoes, ukiona vile watu wanaiba
pesa… alafu tupatie kijana, mimi afadhali nikae na huyo mzee achunge hiyo pesa
itumike vile inatakikana. ama mnasema aje jameni?
” posed President
Kenyatta. (You see how (they) are stealing money, then we give the job to a
young person… I would rather stick with the old man who will guard the money
and ensure it is used in the right way.),” Uhuru said.
Pesa ni yenu ya afya, ya culture, ya arts… sasa mnataka twende na
tumeona vile watu wakipewa kazi kama hiyo vile wanaenda kufanya fanya, si
afahali tupatie huyo mzee hiyo pesa ndio iwarudie? ahh, watu waniwache bana
sitaki mambo mingi.
” (You have seen how people act when they get
such jobs, I would rather give the old man the job and the money still gets to
you. Ahh, people should leave me alone!),” he added.
The
President urged young people to make money the right way and avoid shortcuts
that may land them in trouble later.
