“Kwa Nini Uhuru Amenyamaza?" Orengo Joins Ruto As He Tears Through Uhuru's CSs Over Fuel Issue

Senators have censured Petroleum Cabinet Secretary John Munyes and his Energy counterpart Charles Keter for snubbing their summons to explain the increasing prices of electricity and fuel prices.

In a heated session in the chamber that was supported by both Handshake and Ruto's MPs, the legislators expressed disbelief at the conduct of the CSs, accusing them of treating Parliament with contempt and abdicating their duties.

Speaker Kenneth Lusaka had last week ordered the committee to summon the two officials to appear in person but they failed angering James Orengo to move a censure motion to discuss the conduct of the two ministers.

“The way Parliament is being treated, if you (CSs) have other business, then that business is more important than the Parliament summons or invitations,” angry Orengo said while moving the motion. Some Senators weighing into the matter called on President Uhuru Kenyatta to speak and give a way forward concerning fuel.

The Siaya senator criticised the ministers for failing to show up at a time majority of Kenyans are outraged by the unprecedented increase in fuel prices.
