Mwingi Central Member of Parliament (MP) Gideon Mulyungi has cautioned President Uhuru Kenyatta's Jubilee government against appetite for Chinese loans.
Mulyungi wants the government to go slow on foreign loans warning that the country could plunge into serious debt.
Speaking at Musikini Primary School in Mwingi on Monday, the first time MP noted that the country's foreign debt is rising to unmanageable levels.
He said that while it is not bad to borrow, Kenya's appetite for loans is high and could have repercussions on the economy.
"The President must go slow on foreign loans especially with China because he might easily leave the country grappling with high debt when his term ends in 2022," the Wiper Party legislator said.
Mulyungi further raised fears that the loans the Jubilee government is seeking could end up in some people's pockets.
The MP observed that the government has not fully accounted to previous money borrowed from China and other foreign lenders.
He asked President Kenyatta to ensure that the money his government is receiving as loans is utilised on life-changing projects for Kenyans.
A section of politicians across the divide has raised concerns over the country's rising foreign debt.
Over the weekend, Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jnr said China loans were posing a threat to Kenya's sovereignty.
The concerns on Kenya's rising foreign debt comes as President Kenyatta plans to visit China to secure Sh368 Billion funding for the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) from Naivasha to Kisumu.
Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga is expected to accompany the president to China to secure the loan this week.
