Uhuru: I appointed Moody because the youth are corrupt

Former VP Moody Awori

NAIROBI, KENYA: President Uhuru Kenyatta has defended the appointment of former Vice-President Moody Awori as a member of the Sports, Art and Social Development Fund Board.

The President said he would stand with the 91-year old Moody Awori due to a dwindling trust in youth whom the president linked to rampant corruption in different sectors of Kenya’s economy.

“I could see yesterday in different platforms people complaining about my choice of a 91-year old Awori to look after the youth’s sports fund; the people complaining should put themselves in my shoes,” he said.

“If you see how young people we have trusted with positions steal public money, its rather I appoint somebody like Awori whom I am sure will protect your money to ensure intended developments and services get back to the people,” he said.
