President Uhuru Kenyatta has publicly told off legislators who have been representing governors in court citing conflict of interest.
A stern Uhuru said state and public officers are trustees of the people with a Constitutional, statutory and moral duty to administer public affairs and resources.
Speaking during the 56th Jamhuri Day celebrations at the Nyayo National Stadium on Thursday, the President warned that state and public officers are not above the law.
In an apparent reference to the senators who recently represented Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko in his Sh357 million graft case, Uhuru said he Constitutional order is a jealous one which demands state officers serve no other master than it.
Senators Kipchumba Murkomen (Elgeyo Marakwet) and Mutula Kilonzo Jr (Makueni) are part of Sonko’s legal team in his case.
