Good Morning Kenyans.
The Finance bill has been the talk of the town of late with drama from both the President William Ruto and Azimio leader Raila Odinga’s sides.
During the crucial voting session in Parliament a few days ago, the likes of Githunguri MP Gathoni Wamuchomba and Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris, found themselves on the receiving end from their parties.
Wamuchomba stood her ground in the National Assembly after she had made it public that she opposed the bill.
Some of the UDA party members including Ruto himself lectured the vocal female lawmaker over her decision.
The Head-of-State indirectly remarked that her move was disappointing, as she was denying the government a chance to fulfil the dream of constructing houses for Kenyans.
On the other side, ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna indirectly directed his attacks on Passaris over siding with the government.
He noted that rogue members should leave the party.
This brings us to the big question, is it fair how Wamuchomba and Passaris are being treated?
