CORD, Jubilee MPs fight during Waiguru debate

07 July 2015, 16:18 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD and Jubilee coalition MPs descended into a shouting match during a debate on Devolution CS Ann Waiguru's conduct over the National Youth Service NYS.

The debate ensued after members of two Parliamentary Committees, the Labour and Finance ones, grappled over who should lead the grilling session over the alleged loss of KES 826 million at the NYS.

The clashes begun when CORD MP Opiyo Wandayi accused Waiguru of hiring youths to demonstrate against CORD leader Raila Odinga in Kibera, which brought clashes and destruction of property.

He was however shouted down by a section of Central Kenya MPs led by Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu, forcing Wandayi to leave the session.

Wandayi was also heckled by Jubilee MPs Richard Onyonka and Jimmy Angwenyi who termed his question as lacking in focus and insulting to Waiguru.

The two then went on to refer to nominated MP Oburu Odinga as the "Prime Minister's brother' which caused the session to further degenerate into a proper heckling session.

He also told off Oburu for insisting that he was not part of the session, saying that he was an elected MP as compared to his nominated status.

" I am an elected member and will do as I please," he told Oburu to cheers from the Jubilee legion.

During the session, Waiguru insisted that she had no power in as far as handling procurement at the NYS is concerned and was thus innocent of the allegations of loss of funds.

" I have said and will say again with respect that I am not in-charge of procurement at the NYS and that these investigations should focus on those who are," she insisted.
