Nairobi - The Standard reports that anti-corruption crusaders have expressed shock over claims of bribery in Parliament during consideration of a report that implicated Transport Minister Amos Kimunya and Central Bank of Kenya Governor Njunguna Ndung’u in the loss of Sh1.8 billion in a currency printing deal.
The groups now want National Assembly Speaker Kenneth Marende to investigate the allegations where some MPs were reported to have been given bribes of between KES20,000 to KES30,000 to water down the Public Accounts Committee’s report.
Mars Group’s Mwalimu Mati said the allegations must be investigated by the leadership of Parliament as the claims are ‘very shocking' and show that there is something rotten.
