Is Murang’a Sen. Kang’ata Planning To Embarrass Pres. Kenyatta During The Devolution Conference?

After losing the populist Ward Development Fund bill owing to its legitimacy Senate Deputy Whip appears determined to bulldoze the passing of this bill through arm-twisting and blackmailing the Executive. This comes days after the Controller of Budget pronounced herself on the illegitimacy of such a fund. The Treasury CS has also faulted the bill as it is unconstitutional.

Irungu Kang’ata and Uhuru Kenyatta. Could the senator be planning to embarrass the president?

Kangata on Sunday convened a meeting in Kiambu bringing together MCAs drawn from various Counties to hatch a plot to embarrass the president as he addresses the Devolution Conference by shouts and chants as they demand his action and support to have the bill passed by Senate despite its illegality and unconstitutionality.

The bill bears the stinking levels of ignorance and more so coming from a lawyer and a Deputy whip who cant grasp basics between the roles of County Assemblies and the Executive.

Kangata has also incited MCA to abscond duties and also fail to pass budgets to spark a national breakdown of operations at Devolved units to court the attention of the President and drive away focus from the Jubilee Big Four agenda. Seems he is whipping the County Assemblies against the Jubilee Government.

Kangata is using the ousted Murang’a County Deputy Speaker to rally MCAs to this evil plot.

At a time when the Jubilee Government is fighting tooth and nail to assemble resources to roll out the Big Four Agenda, Kangata is determined to scuttle this by ensuring more funds are channeled to benefit MCAs with the promise that the County Assemblies supporting him will reward him handsomely over this.

It is without any doubt that Kangata is out to settle selfish interests instead of aiding in the delivery of the Jubilee Agenda and thus the Party should drop him and pick on a reliable and responsible Deputy Whip.

We need a Deputy whip who is committed to the Jubilee big four agenda and not aimless rhetorics and sideshows. That whip is not Kangata.big
