Jubilee MPs roast President Kenyatta’s ambassador to Austria nominee

Uhuru's nominee on the receiving end over claims of addiction to shisha

He found himself on the receiving end with Imenti MP Moses Kirima accusing him of being addicted to shisha.

Kirima made the statement when he sought Wario’s stand on the government’s ban on shisha when the later presented himself for vetting by parliament on Thursday.

The comments sparked an angry reaction from the former sports CS who saw it as a sign of disrespect from the legislators.

“What I do in my private life is none of his (Kirima’s) business and none of anybody’s business,” Wario responded.

He added that he “felt really disrespected” by the comments.

The legislators could hear none of that reminding him that as an ambassador, he would portray an image of the country in positive light.

He was reminded that his appointment and vetting “has nothing to do with anthropology. You (Wario) are going to be a diplomat and you have to be a good negotiator”.

Members of the committee chaired by Katoo Ole Metito also bashed the former sports CS for his poor performance which saw Sh 88 Million misappropriated during the preparations for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
