Muranga Senator has come out to clear the air after concerns were raised of him allegedly addressing the senate from a bar.
In a video that has trended online the former majority whip had a background sound that sounded similar to that of a bar.
Senate speaker Kenneth Lusaka gave permission to Kangata to address the senate but shortly after the lawmaker joined virtually, he was dismissed for being out of order.
The clip could later attract mockery from senator Kang’ata’s political opponents who took to social media to make fun about it.
But through his social media account, Kang’ata dismissed the claims as false maintaining that he is a leader of high integrity and moral standards.
He went ahead to argue that no single drop of alcohol has ever passed through his throat.
Kang’ata blamed his political opponents for creating a fake background sound and attaching it to his address to the Senate with an aim of diverting attention from the issues he was raising.
He termed the voice insertion as fake, false, and malicious, further indicating that he has never been intoxicated in his life.
The lawmaker argued that he was addressing the plight of Murang’a milk farmers, who are yet to be paid despite making deliveries to the county’s milk processing plant.
“Kieleweke bloggers – no single drop of booze has ever passed via my mouth. That voice insertion into my today’s Senate contribution is fake and false. The true question that I asked in Senate was about Muranga farmers unpaid milk delivered to county factory.”he wrote.
Lusaka on Tuesday, September 14 afternoon, blocked Kang’ata from continuing with his address to the house after he described the Senator’s location as not meeting the standards set to contribute to the proceedings.
“We can now see you, but where are you?”Lusaka posed.
“I’m in my office, Mr. Speaker,”Kang’ata retorted.
“No, no, no, no, that’s not an office, Senator Kang’ata. I’m sorry, we cannot allow that, the rules are very clear on where you should be, so you are out of order,”Lusaka ruled.
Eventually, Kang’ata made it to the Senate and issued an apology to the house before continuing with his submission.
