One of President William Ruto’s close confidants has slammed the continuing bipartisan negotiations at Kenya’s Bomas, calling them a waste of time and taxpayer money.
Kuria Kimani, a Molo Member of Parliament, remarked on Jeff Koinange Live (JKL) on Citizen TV on Wednesday that the talks will produce nothing because no law can be made at the Bomas of Kenya.
“I consider them to be a complete waste of time and resources.” If you look at the people spearheading this discussion, you will notice that they are the senior members of Parliament. “These are people who served on the House Business Committee,” Kuria explained.
He encouraged the committee, which was co-chaired by Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung’wah and Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, to bring the discussion to Parliament.
“All they need to do is whatever they are speaking in Bomas of Kenya, just bring it to Parliament, prioritise it with the House Business Committee, bring it to the floor of the House, quip it to members across the political divide, and then we support the agenda,” he said.
President William Ruto and opposition leader Raila Odinga initiated the bipartisan discussions to bring peace to the country following the disputed presidential election in 2022.
