Wednesday September 18, 2019-Third Way Alliance party leader, Dr Ekuru Aukot, has sensationally claimed that President Uhuru Kenyatta and National Super Alliance (NASA) leader, Raila Odinga, have already set up Sh 250 million kitty to bribe MCAs countrywide to reject Punguza Mzigo Initiative.
Commenting on Twitter on Wednesday, Dr Ekuru Aukot said Muranga County MCAs were among the first batch of MCAs who were bribed with Sh 100,000 each to reject the popular bill.
Aukot said Uhuru and Raila Odinga are having sleepless nights trying to woo MCAs to reject Punguza Mzigo bill.
“Before the deadline of October 22, the state and powers that be would have spend KES 250 million of your taxes attempting or actually bribing (as it happened in Murang'a today) the 2500 MCAs to reject #PunguzaMizigoBill2019. I wonder why?”Aukot wrote.
Meanwhile, Homa Bay County Assembly has rejected Punguza Mzigo Bill saying it is not people’s driven.
The Bill was tabled before the House on Wednesday by Justice and Legal Affairs Committee chairman Okuku Miregi who told the assembly that is had been subjected to scrutiny and public participation.
“The bill has gone through all the required processes before presented to the assembly. MCAs have rejected it,” he said.
MCAs in Muranga, Siaya and Kirinyaga counties also rejected the Bill leaving only Uasin Gishu County as the assembly which has adopted it.
