Senate demands apology from Ruto PS after calling out Speaker Kingi over Somaliland diplomatic gaffe

Senators demand an apology from Foreign Affairs PS after he publicly called out Senate Speaker Amason Kingi over Somaliland diplomatic gaffe.

Speaking on Thursday in the Senate, senators termed the actions of PS Sing’oei as disrespectful.

This comes after Sing’oei’s statement on his X account reiterated the role of Parliament in foreign relations after Kingi acknowledged the Embassy of Somaliland, throwing Kenya into a diplomatic tiff with Somalia.

The statement forced Kingi to delete the tweet after being called out by the PS. 

Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina opined that the PS was disrespectful to the Senate and the Speaker.

He wondered why the PS had to call out the Speaker, emphasizing that Parliament also played an oversight role in Kenya’s diplomatic agenda.

“The same committee of Foreign relations should summon Korir Sing’oei to come and explain why he took to social media to castigate the speaker of this House,” the Senator commented.

Ole Kina’s statements were also echoed by Senate Minority Leader Stewart Madzayo who questioned why a senior Executive member deemed it fit to call out the Speaker who he described as the country’s fourth in command.

Meanwhile, the PS has maintained that the Ministry will continue to ensure that the country’s foreign policy is not misrepresented.
