Naivasha Member of Parliament John Mututho has threatened to table a censure motion against Special Programmes Minister Esther Murugi for what he claims misleading Parliament on the Internally Displaced Persons situation in the country.
Mututho questioned the credibility of a report that the minister tabled in parliament which he claims would form a basis of his motion.
Mututho’s latest attack on minister Murugi comes in the wake of similar conflict of interest claims involving the IDPs leadership in Mawingu camp over alleged corrupt dealings in distribution of relief food to country’s largest camp which hosted 14,000 families.
“I have a full list of IDPs from her ministry and she is on record telling parliament that she does not know the people I helped settle in Mumoi yet the profiling done by Gilgil DC was sanctioned by her ministry,” claimed Mututho.
Murugi last week insisted that Mututho had no business interfering with the resettlement process of internally displaced persons, “and if he has my docket ambition, he should seek appointment from President Kibaki.”
However, the Naivasha MP hit out at Ms Murugi claiming “She knows that the statistical data she has presented to Parliament on the number of resettled IDPs are falsified to suit her interests and I will soon prove this in the House and even table evidence on who pocketed Sh 15 million from resettlement deals.”
