members of the parliamentary storm off in a dramatic protest during an inspection tour in Mombasa.
The lawmakers led by Kathiani MP, Robert Mbui stormed out in protest after they were not allowed to ask questions according to a report published in the citizen digital.
The health committee had decided to fly down to Mombasa to physically inspect the containers before compiling a report on the same.
“We must visit the site where the containers have been stored for over a year before we come up with our report,” Seme MP, James Nyikal demanded during the session
The parliamentary committee is currently involved in probing the allege 5billion theft at ministry of Health which Kenyans have aptly named the ‘Mafia House’
This new development comes just a day after the Rachael Nyamai led committee, grilled the Cabinet secretary of Health, Dr. Cleopa Mailu about his knowledge of the health scandal. During the grilling session members of parliament raised questions on the cost of mobile clinic and why the containers were still in the hands of supplies yet they had already received payment of ksh800milion.
These new development is sure to rub Kenyans the wrong way especially after a troupe of Jubilee legislatures led by Gatundu North Member of Parliament, Hon, Mike Kuria, and Kikuyu Member of parliament Hon. Kimani wa Chunghwa came out brazenly to defend the government saying no money was lost.
Kenyans are increasingly getting frustrated at this game of moving chairs where suspects implicated in the scandal came and go at their free will. Most Kenyans must be asking themselves what is the government hiding? Why taxpayers’ money should be wasted in a wild goose chase if the inspection exercise would not have revealed any answers at all.
