I did not have electricity – Senator Prengei explains why he missed Jubilee’s PG meeting

Nominated Senator Victor Prengei on Wednesday 27 presented himself before the Jubilee Party Disciplinary Committee and explained why he missed a Senate Parliamentary Group meeting at State House.

The Senator was among those who were summoned after they failed to show up two weeks ago at the meeting that was linked with removing Deputy President William Ruto’s allies from the big positions in the house.

The Senator in his defense claimed that on that material day, he was in the village which is part of East Mau forest. While inviting the Disciplinary Committee to verify his story, he explained that he had gone there because of the Coronavirus issue.

He went further to explain that he took his children to the village adding that in his village, there is poor network coverage and also poor road network.

“I come from a place which is part of East Mau forest. Maybe the committee can visit the place because, on that material day, I was in the village because of the COVID-19 issue. I took my children to the village. In my village, we have very poor network coverage, we also have a very poor road network,” he defended himself.

Prengei went on to explain that his village does not have electricity and that he uses solar panels in his house. He added that because of the rainy season, he is not able to get enough solar energy in his house to run his electronics and still charge his phone.

He mentioned that on that particular day, he did not receive any message from the party. He pointed out that he still is a strong supporter of the Jubilee party and has never missed any party meeting other than the recent one.

“I have stated very clearly other than that meeting that was held on the 11th, I have never missed any other meeting. I have always been supporting the party including the bills and motions that come to the house,” he maintained.

The Senator went on to stress out that he has been loyal to the party and has never talked ill of anyone within it. He maintained that he respects the leadership and every other person in the party and will continue being loyal.
