Outrage after Senator Dullo introduces ‘private matter’ during Solai Dam probe – VIDEO

Isiolo Senator Fatuma Dullo on Monday introduced a “private matter” during a Senate committee’s probe on the Solai Dam tragedy.

The senator during the session digressed from the discussion of the day choosing instead to address noise pollution in her posh neighborhood in Lavington.

She asked Interior cabinet secretary Fred Matiang’i to help her neighborhood in dealing with a bar and restaurant owner who has been interrupting their sleep.

Narok Senator Ledama Olekina however interjected and asked the chairman Senator Mutula Kilonzo to redirect the committee to the Solai Dam issue noting that the CS had mentioned how tight his schedule was.

Senator Dullo protested Olekina’s interruption but Mutula quickly asked the senators to allow the CS to answer the questions around the Solai Dam tragedy.

Matiang’i, during the session was hard pressed to explain the compensation of victims after dam owner told the same committee last week that he gave Sh35million to a committee leading the compensation.

There had been claims that the victims were being forced to sign indemnity forms and that the CS said he would investigate within 30 days and charge any officer found culpable.

A short clip of the moment Senator Dullo introduced the “private matter” was shared online, sparking outrage.
