Bomet MPs walkout of President Kenyatta’s function

3 weeks ago, 16:53

By: Paul Ruto

A section of legislators on Monday evening staged a walkout during an event graced by President Uhuru Kenyatta in Bomet County.

The four lawmakers; Bomet Central MP Ronald Tonui, Bomet East MP Beatrice Kones, Konoin MP Brighton Yegon and Bomet Senator Christopher Langat stormed out after they were reportedly denied a chance to address the public during the official opening of Bomet University.

The legislators walked out of the function shortly after President Kenyatta had made his address.

Citizen Digital has learnt that the MPs were protesting alleged nepotism in the awarding of the contract for construction of the university. They also claim that most workers at the university are from one community.

After the event, President Kenyatta proceeded to address the Lake Region Economic Block conference that brings together 14 counties mostly from Western and Nyanza regions, while the four lawmakers went ahead to address the media in Bomet County.
