MP says State should pay Anglo Leasing debts

A Narok MP wants the Government to honour its obligations to settle Anglo Leasing debts.

“The Government should settle the debts once and for all. Kenya should respect contracts it entered with the international companies. If the matter is brought to Parliament, I will support it,” said Korei Lemein, the Narok South MP.

Lemein (URP) said yesterday he supports Deputy President William Ruto’s call for the settlement of the debts, adding that there would be consequences if the country fails to honour payments.

Three MPs from the region, Patrick Ntutu (Narok west), Ken Kiloku (Narok East) and Johana Ngeno (Emurwa Dikir) have opposed the plan to pay the debts.

Ntutu said Parliament should not approve payment of the debts until  the owners of the companies are known and there is a guarantee that those involved in the shady deals would be punished.

Ngeno said paying the companies would be tantamount to encouraging corruption while Kiloku warned that such a move would have serious repercussions on the country’s economy in future.
