Kenya: KoT Lash Out at 'Greedy' MPs Amid Bribe Claims

Kenyans on Twitter are livid following claims that Members of Parliament were bribed to shoot down a report that indicted two cabinet secretaries in the importation of contaminated sugar scandal.

Parliament rejected the report last week that had been prepared by a joint committee on grounds that the team ignored its terms of reference and did not take into consideration witness statements.
