Jubilee says MPs paying their own bills to the Hague

11 January 2016, 12:39 William Korir

Nairobi - MPs heading to the Hague to accompany DP William Ruto will foot their own bills, the Jubilee Coalition has stated.

It is estimated that over 40 MPs will accompany Ruto to the Hague where he is due to have a date with the International Criminal Court ICC this week.

There has been questions raised by the opposition over who will foot the bills of the MPs travelling, with some accusing the government of using public funds.

However, Majority leader in the National Assembly Aden Duale says that the MPs going are using their own funds.

" Everyone is paying for themselves. There is no government kitty in place. This is a private visit and not a government delegation," he told News24.

Opposition leaders who have been making noise about the continued overspending by government had raised the red flag over the matter but Duale says that there is no truth in the reports.

" They can confirm at Treasury," he added.

The trip to the Hague is not cheap.

A return ticket to the Hague costs in the region of KES 180,000 and hotel rooms in the area go for as much as KES 40,000 a night.

Most of the MPs will spend four days there.

Ruto is headed to the Hague where he is hoping to push through a motion to end the crimes against humanity case against him and journalist Joshua Sang due to what he terms lack of evidence.
