Kericho MCAs barred to travel to Dubai
Kericho MCAs.


The authorization for at least sixteen of the ward representatives who serve in the Kericho County Legislature to go to the United Arab Emirates has been canceled.


At the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport on Tuesday evening, when the MCAs were supposed to travel on a 10-day trip to Dubai, it was alleged that they were blocked from taking their flight.


The meeting with the members of the Congressional Appropriations Committee is scheduled to take place on Thursday. The Deputy President, Rigathi Gachagua, will attend.

At JKIA, Fighting Kericho MCAs barred from traveling to Dubai over a peace meeting
The MCAs were not allowed to get on their plane at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport on Tuesday evening, when they were supposed to leave for a 10-day trip to Dubai.


Several news sources say that they were not allowed to travel because a letter from their party asking them to meet with Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua on Thursday was found.


However, Deputy Speaker Eric Bett was unable to corroborate this, and all he could say was that he was aware that the trip had been canceled.


"This was a journey that was supposed to happen a very long time ago, but it was scrapped.


"Because I was not a member of the team, I am unable to provide any confirmation of what took place at the airport last evening," he remarked.


The letter, dated January 17 and signed by Veronica Maina, secretary general of the UDA, was sent to the MCAs in order to advise them of the next meeting.
"Please be informed appropriately," Maina said. "Please be advised."


"It has been brought to your attention that the UDA Kericho MCAs meeting that was supposed to take place on Wednesday has been moved to the morning of January 19 at 8:00 sharp. The DP will call the meeting, which will be held at his office in Harambee, "the letter read."


The summons comes only a few days after President William Ruto publicly scolded the MCAs for leadership wrangles that have threatened to derail progress in the county. These wrangles have been a source of contention among the MCAs.


"The Kericho MCAs ought to put an end to this madness. How embarrassing! "The people of Kenya gave us their vote so that we could carry out development projects rather than squabble over posts," Ruto remarked during an event in Bomet.


After having a disagreement over the leadership of the House, they were seen fighting in a video that went viral online.


Gilbert Ngetich (Kisiara), Mathew Korir (Chaik), Albert Kipkoech (Soliat), Dr. Naaman Rop (Soin), Simon Koskei (Kunyak), Anthony Ruto (Kipkelion), Hezron Ngetich (Chilchila), Paul Bii (Kapsaos), Philip Mutai (Kipchimchim), and Cheruiyot Bett were among the members of the Ainamoi.


Some of the people on the cancelled trip were David Maritim (Chepseon), Richard Langat (Kedowa/Kimugul), Moses Rotich (Tendeno), Gladys Chesang (Nominated), Monica Chelangat (Nominated), and Vincent MarkToo (Nominated).


It is on record that the Head of the Public Service, Felix Koskei, has said that all state officials, including MCAs, are required to conform to the austerity measures imposed by President Ruto. One of these measures is the reduction of travel abroad.
