MPs have twice shot down the report on contraband sugar, which was prepared by the joint National Assembly and Senate Agriculture Committee. Lugari MP Ayub Savula and his Ikolomani counterpart Bernard Shinali also want the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) and the National Assembly Powers and Privileges Committee, under Speaker Justin Muturi, to probe lawmakers said to have received bribes in order to shoot down the controversial sugar report. Bribery claims “We want proper investigations to be conducted and action taken against our colleagues implicated in the scam that has given the 12th Parliament a bad name,” Mr Savula told The Standard on phone yesterday.
