Wednesday, June 3, 2020 – Kimilili MP, Didmus Barasa, has sensationally claimed that President Uhuru Kenyatta presided over the Jubilee MPs Parliamentary Group meeting with three AK 47 guns on his table.
Sharing his thoughts on social media after he attended a Jubilee Party Parliamentary Group meeting at State House on Tuesday, Barasa, a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto, said nobody was allowed to air their views during the meeting that was attended by over 200 Jubilee MPs.
He added that President Kenyatta, who chaired the meeting, declined to listen to grievances from the Tanga Tanga camp.
“The meeting went on with three AK 47 on the table, nonetheless we tried to lift our hands up but the chairman gave us a blind eye…,” Barasa stated.
The controversial MP was responding to renowned political analyst, Prof Makau Mutua, who hit out at the Ruto camp for allegedly keeping quiet as President Kenyatta went for their colleagues.
“I thought Jubilee rebel MPs — Moses Kuria, Ndindi Nyoro, Alice Wahome, Didmus Barasa, Kimani Ichung’wa, and Kimani Ngunjiri — would CONFRONT Uhuru Kenyatta today at State House and shoot down his PURGE in the National Assembly! Midomo tu,” Mutua chided the MPs.
Uhuru’s PG meeting lasted about 30 minutes after which Majority Chief Whip Benjamin Washiali and his deputy, Cecily Mbarire, were removed from their positions.
The two were replaced by Navahkholo MP, Emmanuel Wanga, and Imenti North MP, Maoka Maore, respectively.
