Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina has revealed the reasons why he voted to throw out the Senate committee report on the Medical Equipment Scheme (MES) scandal.
Taking to his twitter page on Thursday, the vocal Narok senator claimed the report would have been used to sanitize the real culprit should it had passed.
The senator revealed that the real architect of the scandal had allegedly been left out hence the report would have been used by the committee as the scapegoat.
“I voted against the MES report because the real architect of the scam was not mentioned in the report,” he stated.
The fearless considered senator went ahead to give a clear hint on the real identity of the culprit who wanted to use the committee to escape justice.
According to Ledama, the architect and “coordinator” was the same person who was behind the revenue sharing formula stalemate experienced in the senate for over a month.
Ledama termed the suspect and the coordinator of the scandal as a Deep state, who has full control of the government’s strong decisions made in the two houses.
“To give you a hint this was the same person who attempted to control the revenue formula outcome. Deep STATE has a real coordinator @SenMutula,” he added.

After the probe report was thrown out, top government officials implicated over the controversial Sh63 billion Managed Medical Equipment Services (MES) project will now go scot-free.
Interestingly, even members of the proposed committee voted against the report, with only two lawmakers supporting.
A total of twenty-seven senators rejected the report saying it should form the basis of a preliminary probe by the Health committee chaired by Trans Nzoia Senator Michael Mbito.
According to those who voted against, the report had failed to assign individuals culpability in the alleged theft and instead recommended a further probe by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) and forensic audit by the Auditor General within six months.
Over the past few months, Ledama, who has for a long time been considered as one of Raila Odinga’s strong supporters, has seemingly gone slow as far as supporting the handshake government policies is concerned.
Ledama has on a number of times joined hands with the opposing team, criticizing Uhuru’s decisions something that has set tongues wagging on whether the senator was warming up for William Ruto’s camp.
Recently, the Narok Senator hailed William Ruto saying he had won the battle for the revenue sharing formula, irrespective of what was eventually agreed on.
Despite not mentioning Ruto directly, most of those who read the tweet readily understood that the senator was referring to the DP.
