A Section of MPs Travel to Dubai for Training Despite Covid-19 Concerns

Members of Parliament drawn from different political parties forming the Public Financial Committee are in Dubai for what they term as training. A tweet from Nyali MP Mohammed Ali suggest that the MPs are in Dubai for training on public finance management. Some of the MPs include Nairobi Women Representating Esther Passaris and Olago Aluoch among others.

However, the trip by the MPs at a time when the world is still battling Covid-19 has drawn strong reactions from Kenyans who have argued that the MPs are insensitive. The MPs have flown out when the country has scaled up measures to prevent the upsurge of cases from the Covid-19 third wave.

Further, the MPs have been criticized for misusing public resources when they could have conducted the training in the country and save cost. Therefore, it is ironical for these MPs to train on efficient public finance management and administration if they cannot use logic to reduce public spending. Further, the MPs seem to be united when it is something that is a common interest to them such as obtaining allowance but cannot unite to solve problems that bewilder millions of Kenyans everyday.
