Over the past few days, there has been an uproar from Kenyans after the government in the watch of President Uhuru Kenyatta decided to borrow billions of shillings from the International Monetary Fund with an aim of flattening the curve of the third wave of covid-19 virus. The move went ahead to be blasted by Kenyans,both online and offline with questioning of how the government spends the amounts borrowed and corruption scandals being raised.
Yesterday, Kimani Ichungwa, a known ally to Deputy President William Ruto took to twitter to express his displeasure on how policy making and influence peddling have crowded out the private sector from accessing credit and asked who are the real beneficiaries of these. The legislator went ahead to ask how this had compounded our debt and revenue crisis. Below is the tweet.
However, this was not received lightly by some netizens,who went ahead to blast the Legislator for his questioning instead of taking action in the right forum. As it is visible above,a user by the name Lemowonapi reminded Ichungwa that they are sent to the National Assembly to oversight,not to raise questions on twitter.
Another user by the name Sammy Muhanji asked the Legislator what he expected them to do after the Legislature arm of government went to bed with the executive. Below are some some of the replies.
