Shocking revelations were made last month by National hero Moses Ndiema Kipsiro where he said that for seven years now, he has never received the Pajero Mitsubishi car promised to him by President Museveni. This reward was to congratulate him for winning Gold in the 10,000 meter race at the CommonWealth 2014 Games in Glasgow, Scotland.
As a matter of fact, he disclosed that the promised car was whisked away from Victoria Motors by unknown people from State House who took it and have since retained it. To date, Kipsiro says he has had no success finding the individuals who took his car and eventually gave up on it.
While delving into the matter, RX Radio’s Fatboy, said that it’s sad that Kipsiro has not been rewarded for his hard work, blaming it on those who were given the directives to give him the vehicle.
“I don't fault the President directly for this, I will fault him for having the wrong people in place because I think he had every intention of awarding him the car. Probably the people to whom the instructions were issued are the ones to blame,” he said.
Olive, the co-host of the show, expressed concern about the recurring instances such as these where the President makes directives but those supposed to deliver refuse to act. She questioned whether the President doesn't get to hold follow up meetings to account for these issues.
Fatboy explained that among the key issues the President has to address, discussing issues such as these would be less of a priority compared to those concerning national security and economy.
In response, Olive said, “But if that’s the case, then just the other week poultry farmers were claiming that they failed to hear from him yet Kenya banned their products in their country. So who is not delivering the messages to the President?”
Fatboy, still shocked by the boldness of those that picked and retained Kipsiro’s car, said that they must have done it without fear of being held accountable.
“But man, you have to be a real thug to go pick a car meant for Kipsiro, then you don't give it to him! Like you do this knowing that the guy whose car you're snatching won a Gold medal for the country! Yo that is thuggery on another level!” he said in disbelief
He thought it fair to give Kipsiro what he deserved and treated as the hero that he is given that he worked hard to get where he is.
The Fatboy show is hosted by James Onen aka Fatboy, Olive, Sarah and Lesham every weekday from 6am to 10am on RX Radio.
