MPs From Sugar Belt Want Parliament Dissolved For Fresh Elections over Bribery Claims

Nyando MP Jared Okello, Lugari MP Ayub Savula and Matungu’s Justus Murungu have threatened to mobilize all sugarcane farmers to petition the Supreme Court to okay the dissolution of Parliament over corruption allegations.

The leaders want the 12th Parliament dissolved following bribery claims following the rejection of a report on the probe on contraband sugar.

Mr Okello Monday asked President Uhuru Kenyatta and National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi to dissolve Parliament to save it from bribery claims, which he said have rocked most House committees.

“The president should get rid of this Parliament and Kenyans given another opportunity to elect leaders who will take care of their interests and not those who are out to cash in on huge sums of money at their expense,” said Mr Okello.

He added: “I am ready to face the people if that is what it takes to cleanse this rotten Parliament. I can’t sell the will of my people for thousands or millions of shillings.” 

“We are asking investigative authorities to scrutinize CCTV footages in Parliament to help in nabbing those involved in the shameful act,” said Mr Okello.
