MPs propose Bett, Kosgey to replace Chirchir, Koskei

30 March 2015, 09:31

Kuresoi - Two MPs from the United Republican Party have proposed former ministers Henry  Kosgey and Franklin Bett to replace suspended Cabinet Secretaries Davis Chirchir and Felix Koskei.

Kuresoi North MP Moses Cheboi and his Emgwen counterpart Alex Kosgey said that Deputy President William Ruto should immediately appoint the two to take over the Energy and Agriculture dockets after Chirchir and Koskei stepped aside over graft allegations.

Speaking on Sunday during a church service at Kuresoi Africa Inland Church, the two legislators said that Chirchir and Koskei's reputation has already been tarnished and there is no need of having them in the government even if they are cleared of the allegations.

"Once someone has been implicated in a scandal, his/her name is soiled and we see no need of having such people in government when we have other very able individuals who can take up the jobs and even perform them better," said Kosgey.

On his part Cheboi said the DP should immediately propose the names of Bett and Kosgey to President Uhuru Kenyatta so that they can be appointed to the cabinet.

"We have already given the deputy president the names of Bett and Kosgey as the possible replacements of Koskei and Chirchir and we want him to act swiftly because his image is also at stake here," said Cheboi.

Chirchir and Koskei were among the Cabinet Secretaries and senior government officials who were forced to step aside after they were implicated in corruption scandals in their respective ministries.
