This Why I Don't Speak in Parliament- Oscar Sudi

Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi has defended himself after reports emerged that he has never spoken in parliament.

This comes after a report by Mzalendo Trust showed that Kapseret legislator Oscar Sudi has never contributed in the House since he was re-elected in September 2017.

Speaking to the press Sudi said his track record is not measured with how many times he speaks in parliament.

"Let those with meaningless English continue talking while I am working for my electorates since my record speaks for itself," said the deputy President William Ruto allied MP.

Sudi wondered why his electorates are not complaining of him not talking in parliament but just some few individuals.

"Why are people who are not even from my constituency complaining what I have done in my constituency this who talk in parliament have not done for the past 10 years they have been MP's," Sudi added.

The lawmaker said he has initiated a number of development projects in his constituency that the people on the grassroots can attest to and therefore doesn’t need to speak in Parliament.

This comes after a recent report has revealed that MPs who have never uttered a word at the National Assembly Plenary include Nakuru Town West MP Samuel Arama and his Kapseret counterpart Oscar Sudi.

The two MPs are vocal in other matters outside the August House but find no words inside parliament as legislators debate serious issues concerning their constituents.

The other silent MPs include Abdi Tepo (Isiolo South), Abdi Shurie (Balambala), Ahmed Gaal (Tarbaj), Johnson Naicca (Mumias West), Amin Deddy (Laikipia East) Geofrey Kingagi (Mbeere South), James Gakuya (Embakasi North), George Aladwa (Makadara), John Owino (Awendo), Stanley Muthama (Lamu West), Gideon Konchella (Kilgoris), Justus Kizito (Shinyalu), Alfred Sambu (Webuye East) and James Mukwe (Kabuchai).
