MPs: Let Duale be

18 September 2014, 18:32 William Korir

Nairobi - A group of MPs have rubbished calls for Leader of Majority Aden Duale to apologize to Governors over recent comments on corruption.

The MPs, speaking Thursday at Parliament buildings said that Duale was within his right to call for Governors to appear before Senate to defend their spending patterns.

Kasarani MP Njoroge Chege and his Ijara counterpart MP Ahmed Abbas insisted that Duale, who has been under-fire over comments made against Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto and Kiambu's William Kabogo among others Monday, when he called on them to account for public funds.

Duale had accused Ruto of misuse of public funds during a rally in Narok, saying he had plundered KES 184 million belonging to public coffers.

He also went on to attack Ruto's integrity, saying he has no right to talk about a referendum when he is known to be corrupt.

" He must first explain to us where the money has disappeared to before he talks about a referendum, Duale said.

He also claimed that the money does not belong to their 'mothers and fathers'.

Chege said that it was up to the Governors to clear their name in-front of the Senate Committee investigating the matter.

" They should do the right thing and go before the senate and clear their name. That is the right thing to do" , Chege said.

On his part, Abbas insisted that it was prudent for Governors to clear their names in-front of the senate for the sake of accountability.

" It is for the sake of the country that we as leaders are all accountable for funds that are allocated to us for public use" , he said.

Duale has been called upon by Ruto and Kabogo, as well as a number of MPs to apologize for the nature of his remarks, which many have called out of line and derogatory.

He is yet to reply to the calls.
