People should stop soiling the government’s name, Azimio MPs were only given soup- Osoro changes tune.
South Mugirango member of parliament, Sylvanus Osoro, has now gone back on his word, and refuted his own claims that he bribed Azimio legislators to make sure the Finance Bill 2023 is passed.
Osoro on Thursday, stated that the Opposition members of parliament, were given a sum of money, to either forge sickness, Travel outside the country, to avoid any blockade to the finance bill.
He stated on Thursday,” I had to look for ways by hook or crook to get it through. I had to manipulate systems; I looked for ways to get the opposition MPs to play to our tune. I conspired with some opposition MPs and got some of them to be absent from the House so that I could get the numbers. Some of them were sponsored to go abroad while others were bribed to feign illness.”
Speaking at Calib secondary school in West Pokot County on Saturday, The Majority Whip changed tune saying, no one was bribed. He cited that the members of parliament were only invited for soup at the Parliament mess, which was later misinterpreted.
He stated,” I am in charge of catering in the catering committee in parliament and I just said that I invited members from the opposition and I put them in the kitchen where our mess hall is and we had pumpkin soup now you went and changed that saying that a bowl of soup translates to money, MPs take soup as well.”
“The government did not use a single cent to convince Azimio MPs to vote they just did not show up. People should stop soiling the government’s name and those of MPs,” he added.
