Third Basis Revenue Allocation Formula
Yesterday,9th August, Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina argued ODM party leader Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta were being misled over the Third basis revenue Allocation Formula.
He went ahead and urged President Uhuru Kenyatta to speak out and end the CRA stalemate.
Ledama strongly opposed the formula stating that approving the bill would result in the marginalization of the already marginalized regions in the country.
He blamed those around the President for misleading him and urged Uhuru to take time to study the different proposals himself.
“The truth of the matter is that if President Uhuru Kenyatta wants to leave a legacy in this country, he needs to allow Senate to do its job. He needs to look at the numbers clearly. He needs to look at all the proposals. I would beseech him to take one hour alone and put all the proposals there; Sakaja’s , Linturi’s, Olekina’s and the committees. And then call in your team and say I think there’s something you’re not telling me,” he stated
Ledama also accused Senate Majority leader Irungu Kang’ata of lying to Kenyans that the third basis formula was the best for the country.
“I strongly believe that two gentlemen I respect a lot, Uhuru and Raila are being misadvised by busybodies. If you ever come to Parliament you will see some busybodies there running around like they control Parliament. No wonder Kang’ata was saying he had bosses,” he stated
