Kajiado Central MP Elijah Memusi on Monday accused the government of using state resources on his opponent ahead of general elections.
Memusi claimed he has “damning” evidence against the state and said he is writing to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission detailing how tax payers’ money is being “misused” in Kajiado Central.
He told journalists outside Kajiado CDF offices in Kajiado that as a member of the national assembly, one of his roles is oversight on national government.
“We do this to ensure on behalf of the people that the government spends tax payers’ money in prudent and transparent manner,” said the MP.
He claimed that the Ministry of Interior and National Coordination is charged with a task of ensuring the safety of the country, but he is concerned the same ministry is allegedly re-directing resources to facilitate campaigns for certain Jubilee candidate in Kajiado Central.
“A vehicle belonging to Interior Ministry with registration number KAE 612X, previously registered as GK 069R and driven by a Prisons officer is currently being used by JP parliamentary aspirant for Kajiado Central,” claimed the MP.
The MP claimed this is a time when the country is faced with serious security threats and the same Ministry is misappropriating the scarce resources at the expense securing the country.
He said he has complained to the Interior CS over the same and now waiting for reply. The MP added he is considering legal action against the PS.
“If the Ministry does not recall the vehicle, we shall exercise our sovereign powers and seize it peacefully and return to the nearest police station,” said the MP.
He also cautioned the area County Commissioner, Harsama Kello, against indulging in politics in Kajiado.
“If he really wants to take part in politics, let him go back to where he belongs and do it there. He cannot just come here to intimidate his juniors and force them to campaign for Jubilee,” claimed Memusi.
