Suna East MP Junet Mohammed is on the receiving end of mockery after skipping an anticipated interview on NTV. Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei, one of Ruto’s allies, teased Junet for failing to attend the interview scheduled for Wednesday 21st October.
Mark Masi, the TV host started the show with an apology. He informed the viewers that producers of the show tried contacting Junet but they were not successful.
“Tonight we had invited the Suna East MP Junet Mohammed as well as the Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei. Cherargei is in studio but the Suna East MP has gone MIA and we are still trying to get a hold of him. We’ve tried to get a hold of him to no avail,” Mark Masai said.
Junet Mohamed and Samson Cherargei were to discuss the new Building Bridges Initiative Report. President Uhuru Kenyatta and Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga received the report a few days ago.
“On a lighter note, maybe Junet is busy editing reggae lyrics,” Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei commented.
The Building Bridges Initiative
Cherargei is a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto. While commenting on the BBI report, he noted that the document did not capture the aspiration of Kenyans. Additionally, he said that the main agenda in the BBI report is to simply create more positions in the Executive.
“This document is not the aspiration of 47.6 million Kenyans but it is a gentleman’s agreement for self reservation,” Cherargei said.
The Senator also said that there is a hidden agenda for the launch of the Building Bridges Initiative report.
President Uhuru Kenyatta also asked all Kenyans to read the Report.Additionally, he asked kleaders not to use the report to divide Kenyans.
“I am requesting them that between now and Monday they should ensure the document is understandable. .. If you have a simple version put it in all or dailies so that as many Kenyans can see this version,” the president said.
