Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula has come out guns blazing and refuted to claims that he demanded for a vehicle from the county government to ease his movements.
He said that he has enough vehicles that he can use to facilitate his movements while in the county doing his oversight role and at no time he has asked to be given a ‘Prado’.
Two weeks ago reports emerged that Bungoma county government officials had assigned Weta a Prado vehicle after he allegedly demanded for it to ease his movement while looking at the county government implemented projects.
“I have never failed to move around while in the county, I have several vehicles at my disposal and I need no favours from the county government to facilitate my movement up and down,” observed Wetang’ula.
Ford Kenya party leader says that he has been in Parliament since 1992 and should be respected because he has amassed enough resources and needs no favours from anybody.
Speaking Thursday May 28 during an interview on a local vernacular radio station ‘Sulwe FM’ owned by Royal Media Services, Wetang’ula pointed out that he doesn’t micromanage anybody to agree to his demands because each makes any independent decision.
Wafula Wakoli an employee of the senator in the had two weeks ago raised an alarm about the executive trying to bribe him with a Prado in order to silence him or to let him go slow on his oversight role.
The Prado was allegedly from the ministry of roads which had been bought by the contractor to help the Chief Officer in monitoring the construction of the dual carriageway from Musikoma junction to Kanduyi.
