Details of the circumstances that led to a section of National Super Alliance (NASA) MPs from the Gusii region throwing their weight behind President Uhuru Kenyatta can now be revealed. Word has it that some of the MPs are disgruntled that the NASA leadership made empty promises to them regarding house committee leadership slots.
Onyonka was promised the position of chairman of the implementation committee while Momanyi was to represent Wiper Party at the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC).
Addressing a press conference at Parliament buildings Tuesday, the legislators said in as much as there are some underlying issues which call for dialogue, they do not support the swearing in of Mr Odinga.
The MPs present at the press conference included Sylvanus Osoro South Mugirango), Shadrack Mose (Kitutu Masaba), Joash Nyamoko (West Mugirango),Zadock Ogutu (Bomachoge Borabu), Alfa Miruka (Bomachoge Chache) Samuel Arama (Nakuru West) and Innocent Obiri (Bobasi).
The eight lawmakers led by Richard Onyonka (Kitutu Chache, Ford-K) said they recognise President Uhuru Kenyatta as duly elected and therefore no other person should assume the office.
