Tuesday May 5, 2020 – The appointment of Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina to the chairmanship of the Public Accounts and Investments Committee is threatening to explode, especially after ODM, through Siaya Senator James Orengo, threatened to withdraw its membership from the committee as long as Ole Kina is the chair.
In his reaction, Ledama accused Raila of having a hand in the developments despite him supporting the former Premier in the past.
“Raila Odinga is on the record stating that his election has been stolen and I supported him.”
“I was nearly killed in the last Resist Movement!”
“Now, what exactly does this letter mean?”
“James Orengo, are they trying to steal my chair position! No way! I am the wrong number to mess with!” he stated.
Ledama was in the race for the seat against Kisii Senator, Sam Ongeri.
“Sessional Committee of Public Accounts and Investments has been reconstituted with four new members.”
“They are Hargura Godana, Irungu Kang’ata, Ochillo Ayacko and Johnes Mwaruma.”
“The committee will be chaired by Ledama Olekina,” read the statement from the Senate in part.
Kiambu Senator Paul Wamatangi was appointed to deputise Ole Kina, a role previously held by Meru Senator Mithika Linturi.
Ledama and Wamatangi previously acted in the capacity of committee members prior to the latest changes.
