Bahati MP Onesmus Kimani Ngunjiri has defended the MP’s move to reject the report on contraband sugar.
Addressing media in Nakuru over the weekend, Ngunjiri said the move was in order as the report lacked the required insights on the culprits behind the importation of the contraband sugar into the country.
The vocal legislator said as members of Parliament they expected the report to have full names of individuals behind the saga and recommend their prosecution.
“We rejected the report because it had no insights. We expected the report to recommend the prosecution of individuals who were behind the sugar” said Ngunjiri.
On the issue of money exchanging hands among a section of MPs over the same, the Bahati legislator admitted that indeed some legislators received money.
However, he was quick to state that that was not the reason why the report was rejected. “Our interest was to ensure those who were behind the contraband sugar are prosecuted” said Ngunjiri.
Ngunjiri is now calling on Government to investigate what he terms is corruption at the parliament.
The legislator also called on Media to play their investigative role into various sagas in the country to avert loss of public funds.
