Duale wants Wetang'ula to resign over BAT corruption scandal

03 December 2015, 08:47 Arap Yego

Nairobi - Jubilee MPs led by National Assembly Majority Leader, Aden Duale want Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula to resign after an investigative report by BBC mentioned him in a bribery scandal involving British American Tobacco (BAT).

Duale, who was accompanied by four other MPs on Wednesday, said the Senate minority leader should step aside after he was named among the politicians and Civil servants from East Africa who were illegally paid by BAT.

“Wetang’ula should step aside and let investigations be conducted. Investigative agencies should probe the allegations that BAT purchased  him a return air ticket from Nairobi to London when he was a Trade Minister,” said Duale.

He insisted that the allegations against the Cord co-principal are grave and the outspoken Senator owes Kenyans an explanation if the claims are true.

“Wetang’ula and his fellow Cord leaders have been vocal championing for the resignation of government officilais involved in graft. We are challenging him to walk the talk by tendering his resignation as the Senate minority leader,” explained Duale.

The demands by Jubilee MPs for the Senator to resign comes hours after Wetang’ula said he has sued the BBC and local media houses for running a cigarette graft story he termed "malicious and libelous."

"For the record, I have had no dealings of any nature whatsoever with BAT and Julie Adelle Owino, the officer said to have facilitated the transaction, has categorically denied ever procuring a ticket for me," said Wetang'ula.
