"I'm Disappointed" Migori Woman Rep Says Over Ruto Parliament Address, Makes Demand on Hustler Fund

The members of parliament on Wednesday spent their session debating on the address made by President William Ruto on Thursday last week when he opened the 13th parliament by having a joint address of the senate and the national assembly.

Making her submission, Migori County Woman Rep Fatuma Mohammed expressed her concerns, saying that she was disappointed with the president for failing to give a detailed account on how he was going to fight corruption.

Fatuma argued that she expected the president to compel and demand the Judiciary which was represented by the Chief Justice Martha Koome, the deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu among other leaders to deal with corruption and prosecute those found responsible of looting public funds


The MP who was elected as an independent candidate during the August 9th polls, went on to claim that Ruto should put the hustler fund under the leadership of women (woman representatives), since MPs have the Constituency Development Fund.

"I would like the president to hand over the hustler fund to the hands of the women who are the county MPs. This is because we are the people who in our docket serve the disabled, women and the youth who are called the hustlers, and we promise that you will see transformation," she said.

Listen to her, minute 50.
