In the wake of the heart-rending sugar saga, there was speculation that the cabinet secretaries adversely mentioned in a report tabled in Parliament would be impeached.
The devastating report claimed that Treasury Cabinet Secretary Rotich and his Industrialisation counterpart Adan Abdullah Mohamed had not acted as they should to prevent the smuggling of sugar reportedly laced with mercury.
Hopes that the two would be impeached were dashed Wednesday after Parliament failed to adopt the report amid claims that they were bribed to do so.
Matungu MP Justus Murunga claimed that a number of legislators were given ten thousand shillings to save the CSs.
"I literally witnessed MPs being compromised to vote against the report," Dagoretti North MP Simba Arati told journalist.
The claims cast serious aspersions on the independence of the National Assembly.
It is not clear whether these claims are true or not but they will surely cause Kenyans great apprehension.
