Esther Passaris, a Nairobi woman representative, has shown signals of abandoning Raila Odinga in favour of William Ruto's administration.

Addressing the contentious Finance Bill 2023, Passaris told KTN TV that it is still important to her to remove slums from the city, giving a noticeable nod to the administration's ideology and goals.

Her opinions conflict with those of the senior leadership of Azimio la Umoja, who are supporting the contentious Finance Bill.

The elimination of slums by the William Ruto government, in the MP's opinion, was years in the making and shouldn't be resisted even by members of the opposite camp.

"We included the necessity for good housing in our platform, even in Azimio. Many people are crying out, yet there can be no benefit without suffering." Slums must be eliminated. She said, "I support the housing strategy."

Ms. Passaris continued by saying that the city's expanding slum population was a direct result of Nairobi's rapidly expanding slum population and that this trend could only be stopped by implementing urban housing schemes.

The lawmaker observed that Nairobi shouldn't have enormous malls, even though there are nevertheless people residing in slums when discussing the current economic situation of city citizens.

Let's hope the administration acts aggressively while offering it the benefit associated with doubt, she said.

She suggested that the government support civic education on the housing issue so that it may become deeply ingrained in Kenyans' consciousness before being fully implemented.

Even though Kenya Kwanza leaders Raila Odinga and Martha Karua want their adherents and followers to vote against the bill because they believe it was poorly designed and did not take into account the preferences of the whole nation, she accused the opposition of misleading the people about the situation.
