Vocal Tanga Tanga lawmaker speaks on ditching the camp hours betraying DP Ruto

Bahati Member of Parliament Kimani Ngunjiri has broken his silence issuing a statement on his abrupt U-turn on the 2010 constitutional amendment bill contrary to hie earlier stand.

Speaking earlier today, Ngunjiri a religious follower of Deputy President William Ruto noted that the document was in support of their proposed bottom-up approach to the economic recovery.

“On our side, we’ve come up with a policy which dictates the bottom to the top approach which recently began and we’ve been constantly pushing it.

“What’s the difference with this (BBI) which takes funds to the grassroots level from MCAs to the top, and allocates five new constituencies for Nakuru county government? ” Ngunjiri asked.

Nginjiri continued that voting a yes during the yesterday’s special sitting at the National Assembly did not in any way indicate a drift from the DP camp.

“I am still the chief campaigner of DP William Ruto. Have you seen the DP himself say no to BBI bill?,” Ngunjiri posed.

Reports indicate that the sharp turn by President Uhuru critic could be an indication of the inhouse turmoil within the DP Ruto-led TangaTanga faction of the ruling Jubilee party

The MP surprised many yesterday by his abrupt turn during the voting session amid jeers and applause from his colleagues.

“I Onesmus Kimani Ngunjiri, MP Bahati, vote YES,” the MP stated amid cheers and jeers from his counterparts.

A record 235 MPs voted in support of the bill while 83 voted no and two abstained. The total number of votes cast was 320.

He was not the only one who did the unthinkable as his Msambweni counterpart Faisal Bader a member of the DP Ruto camp recently supported by the DP in the Msambweni mini polls also voted yes.
