Friday November 23, 2018-Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader, Musalia Mudavadi, has said the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and National Super Alliance (NASA) leader, Raila Odinga, on March 9th, was a licence to steal public money.
Speaking in Mombasa on Thursday, Mudavadi said even though the handshake between Uhuru and Raila brought tranquility, it has gagged Opposition MPs from pointing out the ills in government.
Mudavadi said since the handshake, corruption has become rampant in the National Assembly to an extent that reports are being doctored. He said MPs have neglected their oversight role.
The ANC boss cited the debates on contraband sugar and illegal maize imports whose outcomes were marred with bribery allegations.
“Parliament has gone to bed with the Executive and abandoned its sacred function of keeping the government in check. Parliament reports are either altered or diluted and mutilated to protect partisan interests and not those of the public,” he said.
Mudavadi also claimed that Raila Odinga is no longer the opposition leader since he went to bed with the government on March 9th.
