Suna East Member of Parliament (MP) Junet Mohammed has claimed that President William Ruto is allegedly wasting public resources to settle petty political scores.
In a tweet, the MP said that the country has more pressing issues and that the government should seek solutions for their citizens, calling the petition hearing to remove the four IEBC commissioners petty.
A country experiencing unprecedented drought and hunger, millions of children out of school, millions of young people out of work, crimes surging in urban areas, your policy failures leading to high cost of living, shouldn't waste public resources settling petty political scores. https://t.co/iF109EyeWN— JUNET MOHAMED, CBS (@JunetMohamed) November 25, 2022

Junet responded to president William Ruto’s tweet where he slammed Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and Ex-President William Ruto’s handshake of 2018.
He claimed that the handshake destroyed oversight institutions in the country.
"The lords of impunity,who destroyed oversight institutions using the handshake fraud,should allow parliament to hold rogue officials who put the nation in danger by subverting the democratic will of the people to be held to account. New order is RULE of LAW not wishes of big men," President Ruto tweeted
This follows the petition hearing of the four IEBC commissioners facing removal from office because of their code of conduct during the previous general elections.
The four commissioners are; Juliana Cherera (vice chairperson), Irene Masit, Francis Wanderi, and Justus Nyangaya.
Raila and Kalonzo Musyoka attended the four-day hearing at parliament buildings yesterday that saw the minority members of parliament walk out of the hearing.
The walkout was led by Junet Mohammed. He was then joined by MPs TJ Kajwang, Stephen Mogaka, and Aden Daudi.
