Political Commentator Professor Herman Manyora now claims that there was no need for President William Ruto to convene the Kenya Kwanza parliamentary group meeting, and take the leaders through the Finance Bill 2023.
This is after videos and pictures from the meeting went viral, where Ruto turned the meeting to a class, and took the lawmakers, who had pens and notebooks, through the bill which is expected to be tabled in parliament anytime soon for debate and approval.
Through his You Tube Channel on Friday, Manyora claimed that Ruto wasted his time in explaining to the lawmakers what the bill entails, since they were ready to support it whether they knew its contents or not.
"The bill will pass, and the president was wasting his time since this is not about reason, logic or knowledge. People just vote to support the party and the president, and they also have the numbers so why will they not pass it? There was no need for the PG meeting."
"The bill will pass since it is difficult to have condemnation of the whole house. If a few people stood out from Kenya Kwanza, they will be risking their next elections, and those who will be opposing the bill will be those from Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance. This is a war between Kenya Kwanza and Azimio, and there is no way the bill will not pass, and that way the MPs from KKA will be on the safe side."
