Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior was over the weekend under pressure after he commented on President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga’s new China deal.
Uhuru and Raila are set to tour China next week for negotiations into another Ksh 368 billion loan to fund the construction of the Standard Gauge Railway Phase 2 B, which is to run from Naivasha to Kisumu.
The Makueni legislator questioned the deal, saying that Kenya is already at 55% debt ratio to GDP .
Mutula Jnr says the PFM gives a threshold of 50%.
He argues that “These Chinese debts are a threat to our sovereignty.”
He says the people of Kenya will one day challenge these decisions.
The comment got Kenyans on Twitter task the legislator with a role of questioning the deals in the Senate.
With the coming of many money lending apps in Kenya, some Kenyans asked the legislator if Tala and Okash, which are among the leading e-money lenders are aware of the deal.
Here are some of the reactions that seem to have put Senator Kilonzo Jnr under Pressure.
