MP’s vehicle impounded by auctioneers

25 September 2014, 13:04 Biden Juma

Bungoma - Kabuchai Member of Parliament, James Lusweti, is facing a financial crisis that has prompted auctioneers to impound on his vehicle.

Auctioneers impounded on the CORD MP's white Toyota V8 vehicle earlier this week for failing to repay   a loan he had borrowed from a local bank.

The Legislator's plea to the auctioneers to give him more time fell on deaf ears.

"Wachene kuniabisha bwana hii pesa nitalipa (stop shaming me;  will pay the money)," the MP was overheard  saying.

The auctioneers however made away with the vehicle and gave him seven days to clear the debt.

Reliable sources told News24 that the MP sought help from the area Governor who gave him KES 300 000 that was however not enough to settle his debts.

The source further revealed that the MP has been camping at the area Senator's home pleading for help.

The MP is now operating in a small saloon car he borrowed from a friend.
