MPs want those named in NYS scam to take responsibility

By KBC Reporter

A section of Members of Parliament affiliated to the Jubilee Alliance have asked National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale and Elgeyo-Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen to take personal responsibility after the two were linked to the NYS scandal.

The MPs say the accusations leveled against the two should not be used to bring division between The National Alliance party and the United Republican Party in the coalition.

Differences have emerged in the Jubilee Alliance after National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale, Elgeyo-Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen and Deputy President William Ruto’s personal assistant Faouk Kibet were linked to the NYS scandal by an affidavit sworn by former Devolution CS Anne Waiguru.

The MPs say Duale and Murkomen must come out clean and tell Kenyans what they known about the 791 million shillings scandal.

The MPs want those mentioned to step aside from the positions they hold in Parliament until they are cleared.

The legislators were speaking in Narok where they were hosted by Narok south mp Korei Ole Lemein.

Duale scoffs

Meanwhile, National Assembly Majority Leader Adan Duale has hit at CORD leader Raila Odinga over his calls that he should step down.

Duale has accused Raila of seeking to lecture the Jubilee administration on corruption while he went mute when those associated with his party were mentioned in bribery allegation at the judiciary.

Raila wants Duale, Senate Deputy Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen and Treasury CS Henry Rotich to resign over their alleged involvement in the corrupt deals in the National Youth Service.

Even though Garissa Township Mp Duale has defended himself against claims contained in an affidavit by former Devolution CS Anne Waiguru, pressure has continued to mount that he resigns from his leadership position in Parliament.

Duale further argues that the mention of his name by Waiguru should warrant any calls for resignation as the affidavit does not outline the aspect of corruption he was involved in and the benefit he got.

In his characteristic manner, the Majority Leader has turned to Raila, saying “If Raila who has scandalized himself severally and who hobnobs with thieves and drug dealers has never resigned then I cannot do so.”

He further accuses Odinga of being silent on the matter of alleged bribery allegations at Judiciary.
