Two western MPs clash in Parliament over looters of ailing Mumias

06 August 2015, 21:33 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – Two western MPs clashed on the floor of the House over individuals responsible in the mismanagement and massive looting of the ailing Mumias Sugar Company.

Ayub Savula (Lugari) engaged in bitter exchange with Wafula Wamunyinyi (Kanduyi) after accusing him of being among individuals to be held accountable for conspiring with former Mumias Sugar directors to bring the company to its knees.

“Mr. Speaker, is the honorable member in order when he keeps mentioning Mumias Sugar factory’s insolvency when we already know that he is among individuals responsible for bringing down the company?” asked Wamunyinyi during debate session presided over by Tom Kajwang (Ruaraka).

An angered Savula hit back at Wamunyinyi asking him provide evidence linking him to the collapse of Mumias and warned him against relying on rumors to tarnish his name.

“Mr. Speaker, the honorable member should substantiate his claims by tabling evidence associating me to corruption and looting of Mumias other than making baseless allegations,” responded Savula.

Kajwang asked Wamunyinyi to provided the requested evidence or withdraw his sentiments and apologize. However, the defiant Kanduyi MP refused and maintained that given adequate time, he would provide the evidence.

“I can’t withdraw and apologize yet the member has been mentioned in several audit reports on Mumias insolvency. I will provide the evidence before this House,” promised Wamunyinyi.

The drama went on compelling Kajwang to intervene when Savula threatened to Wamunyinyi for insisting that he been mentioned in audit reports by investigative agencies.

“Which audit reports have I been mentioned? This matter is not going to end only in this House but also outside the parliament,” threatened Savula.

Kajwang told Wamunyinyi to ensure he provides evidence or else risk punishment.

“I am going to take this matter seriously because it is recorded in the Hansard and honorable Wamunyinyi should provide evidence to the House,” said Kajwang.
