How money was exchanged to save CS Linturi 'I was offered 3M; MP claims

MP Omanyo claims most of the committee members who were tasked with determining the fate of Linturi were offered bribes to save the CS

MP Omanyo claims most of the committee members who were tasked with determining the fate of Linturi were offered bribes to save the CS.

Busia Woman Rep Catherine Omanyo has claimed that someone tried to bribe her to write a favourable report in the impeachment case against embattled Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Mithika Linturi.

Speaking during an interview with Citizen TV, Omanyo said most of the committee members who were tasked with determining the fate of Linturi were approached with bribes to favour the CS. 

“Someone came to me with Ksh.2 million, and another came saying the money had increased to Ksh.3 million because the report against Linturi was hot. At some point these people asked me to state what I wanted to favour the CS,” Omanyo said.

She revealed that the committee members were given bribes, but some declined to be compromised.

“It was very heated during committee sittings. At some point, we almost got physical because of the bribery within the committee. We had to retreat to cool off before we resumed sittings,” Omanyo added. 

The MP said the allegations against CS Linturi were glaring and there was no way he was supposed to escape blame in the fake fertiliser saga. 

Linturi survived impeachment when seven out of the 11 committee members voted in his favour.
