Uhuru Kenyatta's close ally booed at the funeral services after defending high prices of oil in the country. Kega, who is chairman of Parliament's National Budget Committee, had attempted to justify the high cost of living, only to be silenced by loud jeers from mourners who would hear none of it. A thing that has sparked alot reactions from people across the country.
Kenyans have been up in arms, demanding the president to address the issue of high fuel prices, which has consequently led to high cost of living.
Many have been questioning why fuel is so expensive in Kenya yet it is cheaper in neighbouring landlocked countries. Experts have pointed an accusing finger at the government, accusing the president of ruining the economy with his high tax regime among others.
The MP was defending himself after Laikipia Woman Representative, Cate Waruguru called him out for being a sycophant to President Uhuru Kenyatta, and always painting a picture of how rosy things are, even as Kenyans continue to suffer.
