Friday August 10, 2018 - Members of Parliament yesterday shot down a report by Kanini Kega-led committee on controversial sugar importation that was found to have high contents of heavy metals.
The report had indicted Treasury Cabinet Secretary, Henry Rotich, East African Community CS, Adan Mohammed, and former Agriculture CS, Willy Bett.
The report had recommended that they be removed from office and further investigated and prosecuted if found guilty of allowing the poisonous sugar into the country.
However, it has now emerged that some of MPs received bribes to shoot down the report and in the process save Rotich and Adan from impeachment.
A number of legislators from the Western Kenya sugar belt accused some of their colleagues of receiving sh 10,000 to dismiss the sugar report in a bid to save the two CSs.
“Kenyans need to know the calibre of leaders they have.”
“They are parading themselves to be paid at the expense of those who elected them.”
“Journalists should expose and shame these leaders,” Simba Arati said.
