Ministers should come from parliament – MP. Johana Ng’eno

Emurua Dikir MP. Johana Ng’eno in Kass FM studio.
Emurua Dikir MP Emurua Dikir has said that Ministers should be elected from the National Assembly so that they are directly answerable to the people.

Speaking exclusively today during KASSFM’s Lene Emet morning show, Ng’eno said that currently, Cabinet Secretaries are only answerable to the president – who is the appointing authority.

Ng’eno said that only Kenyans can decide to live in peace and not by amending the constitution.

“Changing the constitution can never bring peace in the country. The people of Kenya should embrace togetherness and live in harmony with each other despite their ethnic backgrounds.”

The MP observed that the government ought to check its borrowing saying it is not sustainable when the government takes a loan to repay another loan.
“President Kibaki achieved so much in infrastructure development without plunging the country into debt. This government has taken the country into debt and should halt borrowing.”

On Corruption, the MP said that corruption can’t end through legislation adding that the people should take the responsibility to elect a president who is not corrupt.

“Kenyans should not elect a president just because he or she comes from their tribe but someone who will not steal from public coffers,” he observed.

Ngeno also said he will support DP. William Ruto in 2022 in his presidential ambition.

“DP William Ruto has my support in his bid to vie for president in 2022. I am a KANU leader but that does not affect my support for William Ruto because we have no presidential candidate in our party.”
