MP wants Speaker Muturi to make public report on graft in Parliament

09 December 2015, 11:21 Obare Nyamota

Nakuru - A Nakuru Member of Parliament has asked the National Assembly Speaker, Justin Muturi to make public the EACC report on graft in Parliament.

Bahati MP, Onesmus Kimani Ngunjiri on Tuesday said Muturi's withholding of the report was portraying all MPs as corrupt and exposing them to public ridicule.

“The clerk of the National Assembly, Justin Bundi should also be asked to explain some of the existing anomalies,” the Nakuru parliamentarians’ caucus leader said.

The fiery TNA MP also called for arrest of former legislators found to be earning salaries despite losing in the last general election.

The report by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission indicates that MPs have been engaged in fraudulent deals to steal public funds, with some making suspect mileage claims.

The EACC’s 50-page dossier also details how MPs with official cars pilfer money for fueling.

MPs who have official cars include commissioners of the PSC and party leaders.

Also highlighted was how members hop from one committee to the other to earn sitting allowances.

He thanked Speaker Muturi for calling the anti-graft body to conduct investigations, saying that though late, it will save billions of taxpayers money.

“Members should have a look at the report and question its validity. It will help also nab corrupt parliamentary service commission officers,” he said, acknowledging that graft was rife in Parliament.

EACC has given Parliament 21 days to seal all corruption loopholes.

EACC CEO, Halakhe Waqo on Friday said the system was ‘so weak that they could not ascertain the exact amount lost.'

A Nakuru based lobby group also urged Muturi to assist the EACC to weed out corruption that was deep-rooted in Parliament.

“The EACC alone will not succeed in dealing with the graft,” said Nakuru Human Rights Network director, David Kuria.
