Nairobi Single Mothers Lobby Group has called out Muthoni Ouko for opposing Dishi Na County program.

The Patron of the Nairobi Single Mothers Lobby Group Edward Githaiga, said that Muthoni Ouko has taken to court the issue of hot lunches in schools because she had earlier planned on launching the same kind of enterprise.

Muthoni Ouko was fired by the previous Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko because of misappropriation of bursaries that involved private companies being paid as schools. She was re-appointed as Minister of Education by former speaker Mutura without vetting which was unprocedural appointment. This therefore means that the salaries she received are irregular earnings. We appreciate Justice Mugure for refusing to grant Muthoni her interests. She wanted Governor Sakaja’s Dishi Na County program stopped. She is after her own personal and selfish gains at the expense of the welfare of Nairobi’s children. We also ask ODM Party not to associate with her since she went there to get political clout. We speak against corruption in our Government institutions. Our organization remains committed to transparency, justice and accountability.

Nairobi Single Mothers Lobby Group, Secretary General Maria raised the issue of embezzlement of bursary funds by Muthoni Ouko not only in the previous County Government regime but again also in this current County Government regime. The amounts embezzled run into tens of millions of shillings. This misuse of funds affects countless children that desperately need assistance.
