Tuesday June 18, 2019 - Kandara MP, Alice Wahome, was among MPs who dared President Uhuru Kenyatta to a political contest for castigating the Tanga Tanga group.
On Sunday, Uhuru who was spoking at Kasarani Gymnasium during the annual Akorino gathering, warned Central Kenya MPs against politicking and urged them to concentrate on development in their constituencies.
Uhuru also claimed that he helped them get elected in their respective seats and threatened to evict them from their seats if they fail to toe the line.
But in a fast rejoinder, Wahome dismissed Uhuru’s claims that he helped her win her Kandara seat.
“It is unfortunate that the President can stand on a religious podium and speak such words to his people.”
“I do not think I am a beneficiary of anyone and I think that goes for everyone else," Wahome told NTV on Monday.
After dismissing the President’s remarks, Wahome seems to have touched a live wire.
On Monday evening, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) summoned Wahome over a 2012 case where she served as a lawyer in a case about the estate of former Minister, Mbiyu Koinange.
Wahome is among four lawyers accused by Koinange’s family of withdrawing Sh284 million from the estate’s account without proper court orders.
If convicted, Wahome may be sent to jail for over 10 years.
