Jubilee has made corruption part of its manifesto
18 November 2015, 12:20
Nakuru - A Nakuru-based rights group has claimed that the government is using taxpayers’ money to fund MPs' trip to The Hague.
Nakuru's 'Tuko Macho' group claimed that contrary to claims that individual members of parliament are funding their own trip, the government is secretly paying for air ticket, accommodation and daily allowances for MPs who accompany DP Ruto to the Hague.
Speaking Wednesday during a breakfast meeting at a Nakuru hotel, Peter Mwania the Group chairman said that a huge number of MPs agreed to accompany Ruto to The Hague after they were promised to be paid daily allowances and their bills footed for by the government.

“We have heard them claim that each MP is funding his own trip but the reality is that the government is paying for everything including their own allowance for the number of days they will be there,” claimed Mwania.
“Most of them agreed to go (to Hague) after they were promised daily allowances and because they love free money they all agreed,” he added.
He lashed at the Jubilee government for making corruption and misuse of public funds part of its manifesto and warned that Kenya was ready to teach the Jubilee administration a lesson in 2017.
“They have decide to make misuse of taxpayers money as part of their manifesto and that is why neither the President nor his deputy are concerned about the large scale corruption going on in government but 2017 is not that far,” he said.
