Siaya Senator James Orengo has asked Members of Parliament both at the National Assembly and the Senate to say NO to the expansion of debts in this country.
According to Senator Orengo, the government of the Republic of Kenya has already secured too many debts which are only going to be a burden to the ordinary taxpayers.
He stated that as much as they had made a decision as ODM party to support the government, they will however not do that when the government is not doing things right.
The legislator, who spoke during the burial of Siaya County MP Dr. Christine Ombaka’s mother in-law at Ulumbi village in Gem constituency, has at the same time called on the government to continue with the social protection programmes which were put in place to cushion Kenyans from the effects of COVID-19.
Senator Orengo says that since the pandemic is not yet over, those social protection programmes need to remain in place because until such a time that Kenyans shall have gotten economic reprieve.
He on the other hand took issue with Deputy President William Ruto and his allies over their persistent attack on President Uhuru Kenyatta and challenged them to quit government if they are not contented with its operations.
The lawmaker stated that a time has come when Ruto and his allies have to decide whether they are part of the government or not, arguing that they cannot continuously undermine the authority of President Uhuru and his government and still claim to be part of it.
