Monday August 13, 2018 - A section of politicians from Western Kenya have declared war against fellow Members of Parliament accused of taking bribes to shoot down a damning report on the sugar import scandal that implicated senior Government officials.
Led by Mutungu MP, Justus Murunga, and his vocal Lugari counterpart, Ayub Savula, the MPs suggested that the 12th Parliament be dissolved owing to the bribery allegations that badly tainted the reputation of Parliament.
The MPs threatened to mobilise Kenyans from Western and Nyanza regions, and especially the sugarcane farmers, to file a petition at the Supreme Court to start the process of dissolving the embattled 12th Parliament if President Uhuru Kenyatta will not do it.
According to the Luhya MPs, they had information that some MPs received bribes to tamper with the dirty sugar report and that they were ready to share their testimonies with the Powers and Privilege Committee as was ordered earlier by National Assembly Speaker, Justin Muturi.
