"Follow Kivutha Kibwana's Footprints" Expert Tells Ruto What he Should do on Thursday in Parliament

Political Analyst Professor Herman Manyora has called upon President William Ruto to stand with the Judiciary that the Constituency Development Fund, CDF remarks illegal, and pass the message boldly to the MPs on Thursday, September 29th, when he will be addressing the MPs and Senators in parliament during a joint meeting.

Ruto while meeting Kenya Kwanza Alliance leaders gave the CDF a soft spot, despite Chief Justice Martha Koome maintaining that the fund was illegal, and that MPs ought to focus on their oversight duty.

According to Manyora, Ruto needs to be bold and save Kenyans following the courts decision, same as how the Former Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana did by facing the county MCAs and telling them off, to an extend of calling the former President Uhuru Kenyatta to disband the county leadership.

"Professor Kivutha Kibwana at one time told off his MCAs. He said 'if you do not want us to have a budget that solves the issues of Makueni residents, let all of us go home,' only Uhuru saved them."

"Those are the kind of leaders we want like Kibwana, so Ruto should look MPs in their eyes and tell them, 'I am going to take you on a tour of this country, and they visit the villages where people are suffering,' and maintain his stand that CDF is illegal or even dismiss the allowances they are demanding. Ruto's first thing should be to stop wastage," said Manyora.

Manyora's sentiments comes a couple of hours after COTU boss Francis Atwoli while speaking with NTV said that MPs deserve to get the allowances suspended by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission, as well as the CDF allocation.

Treasury CS Ukur Yattani last week stated that his ministry was not going to disburse the money.
