Latest remarks by Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe seem to have rubbed a few leaders the wrong way as some have faulted him.
At a moment when the country is facing shortage of vaccines, Cherargei accused CS Kagwe of talking about the BBI Bill which was declared unconstitutional by the High Court.
Kagwe had recently downplayed the weight of the Court’s ruling on BBI as he expressed confidence that the process will continue soon.
Cherargei speaking in the Senate asked the Speaker and the Senators if they should move a motion of no confidence on Kagwe for allegedly failing to address health matters.
“At the National level, you will find a Cabinet Secretary in charge of Health, Mutahi Kagwe discussing irrelevant matters as opposed to when are we getting the second AstraZeneca vaccine. Should we move a vote of No Confidence against Mutahi Kagwe because he is busy discussing BBI as opposed to telling us when is vaccine coming to the country,” asked Cherargei.
The senator further took a swipe at the government saying that the only weapon the government has so far in the fight against the deadly virus is to impose a lockdown and to introduce curfews.
“Kenyans are yet to receive vaccines. The only strategy that we have against Covid is lockdown, restriction of movement and curfew yet we are not discussing vaccination,” added Cherargei.
