- The cheery lawmakers cancelled their trip as they followed the county’s First Lady to get their share. Indeed, the cash was meant for them.
They say when it rains it pours, yes. There was drama in town last week when a prominent governor’s wife landed in a helicopter with sacks of money to bribe MCA’s .
According to the report that was first written by The Star, the wife of a governor flew out of Nairobi with a sack full of cash. You would ask why? Well, She needed to pacify some noise causing political turbulence for her husband. When she alighted, a number of MCAs were boarding another flight to Nairobi. Her arrival reportedly caused a stir.
The cheery lawmakers cancelled their trip as they followed the county’s First Lady to get their share. Indeed, the cash was meant for them. Sources reveals that MCA’s have pocketed millions to go slow, in fact, to abandon a position they had taken. However, Insiders aware of the nasty deals are asking DCI boss George Kinoti to make an example of this to would-be offenders.
This is not the first time Members of county assembly have been reported to have pocketed money to either vote in a certain manner or abandon an idea. The rot in County Assemblies has seen even some governors find themselves on the losing end and some forced to bow to their pressure.
The president has vocally spoken against the infighting amongst various house members from the parliament, senate to the county assemblies.
If and when the the DCI will investigate the issue and give us the report, we shall keep you posted.
