Under the new financial bill that was today signed by President Uhuru Kenyatta, Kenyans have expressed their sentiments saying that the Members of parliament did not represent them well yesterday during the debate. Although President Kenyatta has explained his reasons, it still does not sit well with Kenyans.
President Kenyatta has said that it is because of his intentions to keep fighting corruption. Kenyans however feel that the passing of the bill will lead to their suffering and drain them financially. Already new prices have been announced shortly after the signing of the bill into a law.
But who is to blame? Kenyans think that the MPs yesterday only voted while thinking about themselves and their personal interests. In other words, Kenyans feel that the MPs failed them.
In a poll put on KTN twitter platform. Kenyans were to state whether they felt well represented during the 2018 Financial bill vote.

From the poll, most felt that the members of parliament did not meet their expectations.
They were busy dancing and making pr drama’s so that they can be seen but we knew they had a deal to fool us God is watching and vile my MP anakuanga na njaa hata akipewa 5k to sell us he will do it.

I never heard a word from my MP. Actually all I saw yesterday was a budget passed with zero concern of a common mwananchi status.
In short, it was a debate and decision driven by their own interest to look good in the “eyes of someone else”.

What the MPs portrayed yesterday was total childishness. They failed us as Kenyans totally??
