The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Secretary General, Edwin Sifuna wants National Assembly Majority Leader, Aden Duale investigated over the current sugar scam in the country.
Addressing faithful at Ebubi Church of God in Luanda Sub County on Sunday, Sifuna sensationally claimed Duale was the chief architect behind illegal importation of sugar.
Earlier, amid the raging controversy over contaminated sugar in several parts of the country, the Majority Leader had promised to table in Parliament list of individuals allegedly involved in the unlawful sugar business.
Duale is one of the major players in the sugar industry. Therefore, he should refrain from taking Kenyans for a ride, said Sifuna.
He insisted that the majority could not publicly parade sugar cartels whom he claimed were his accomplices in the whole syndicate.
Terming Duale’s remarks as hogwash, the outspoken lawyer challenged the Garissa Town legislator to first begin by tabling the list of terrorists involved in the Garissa University massacre in April 2015.
The same Duale had promised Kenyans he would table the list of Al-Shabab militia following the bizarre murder of about 150 students and staff at the Garissa University 3 years ago, asserted Sifuna.
Let Duale begin by exposing the Al-Shabab terrorists before he can say anything on sugar cartels, he emphasized.
The ODM official further urged security organs countrywide to enhance investigations over the sugar scam to enable Kenyans know the real culprit behind the scheme.
Kenyans, especially sugarcane farmers in western region are dying to get answers about unscrupulous businessmen who are out to kill the country’s cane industry, he remarked.
His sentiments were echoed by Vihiga County Women Representative, Beatrice Adagala and Amani National Congress (ANC) nominated Member of Parliament (MP), Godfrey Osotsi.
Osotsi appealed to President Uhuru Kenyatta to intervene and help put to rest the current problems bedeviling the country’s sugar industry.
