Rift Valley MPs Hand Over Probox to Musician in Parliament [PHOTOS]

  • Jubilee Party Members of Parliament (MPs) from the Rift Valley region caused a scene at the Parliament buildings with a Probox.

    Journalists and onlookers were drawn to the scene where the lawmakers, led by nominated MP Gideon Keter, were handing over the car to celebrated Kalenjin musician Florence Chepng'etich "Naswa".

    "Rift Valley MPs and I today (Wednesday) outside the National Assembly donated a brand new car to Florence Chepng'etich (Naswa) in appreciation of a number she sang to Jubilee during last year's campaigns," Mr Keter posted on his Facebook account.

    Confirming the events, Moiben MP Silas Tiren told Kenyans.co.ke that the legislators had come together and agreed to reward the musicians that campaigned for the ruling party.

    "This is an initiative that we intend to keep doing because these artists were an integral part of our campaigns.

    "My colleagues and I chipped in and raised the funds to purchase two vehicles, the other will go to Ms Fancy Chepkorir alias Marion and we will soon present it to her at home," the MP confirmed.

    When asked why they had chosen to hand over the vehicle at the Parliament buildings, Mr Tiren conveyed that it was for the sake of convenience.

    MP Keter assured musicians that he would sponsor legislation in Parliament to ensure that their royalties are well adjusted to compensate them.

    "When the Parliament sessions resume, I will ensure that laws governing the issuances of royalties favour our youth.

    "More importantly, l will ensure Studio Mashinani takes off soonest. Setting up the studio in each county to ease the challenges of recording and to ensure it is affordable to the locals," the MP promised.
