MP Barasa is out of order to question Wafula Chebukati

By George Williams | Nov 5th 2018 | 1 min read

Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa should join the global poverty eradication programme so they can teach him how to conquer his poverty of integrity, which is his main political handicap.

This is the legislator who wrote in the Saturday Standard on electoral commission Chairman Wafula Chebukati insinuating in virtually every paragraph that Chebukati had no integrity and was allegedly incompetent.

He carefully camouflaged his obvious sympathies and bias in favour of former commission CEO Ezra Chiloba until the last sentence of his drivel when he wrote: "...Chiloba must be willing to say all he knows about the last elections and the current IEBC shenanigans."

If Chiloba is willing to tell all he knows, he would not need any further prompting from Barasa, whose controversies are well documented in the public domain. But Chiloba is mum because he is afraid of coming forward with self-incriminating evidence.

Chiloba has yet to state that he will accept the invitation of House committee to come forward voluntarily and testify.

On the other hand, the Auditor-General's report on IEBC has provided a damning indictment on misappropriation of public funds under Chiloba's tenure.That said, between Chebukati and Barasa, who lacks integrity?

Foremost is his sensational claims that MPs were bribed with as little as Sh10,000 by Wajir Woman Rep Fatuma Gedi. Barasa later denied the accusations made in a parliamentary committee.

So much for the integrity of this man accusing Chebukati of having no integrity.
