National Assembly Majority Leader and Kikuyu Member of Parliament Kimani Ichung'wah on Tuesday denied being part of the team that advised former President Uhuru Kenyatta on economic matters as the blame game on which administration is responsible for the economic mess the country finds itself in continues to escalate.
Speaking during an interview, Ichung'wah who was the Chairperson of the Budget and Appropriations Committee during former President Uhuru Kenyatta's administration claimed that he was frozen out by the former Head of State.
The lawmaker claimed that Uhuru fired him as Chairperson of the influential committee after 19 months.
During the interview, Ichung'wah alleged that during his stint as Budget Committee Chairperson, Uhuru asked him to do illegal things leading to their fallout. He, however, declined to reveal the things he was asked to do.
"I am an accountant by profession and I was not going to ruin my reputation. I asked him to look for another Chairperson. That is how we started to disagree," he revealed.
Ichung'wah also accused Uhuru of paying bloggers to tarnish his name and spread false information.
The majority leader emphasised that Uhuru was solely to blame for the economic crisis in the country, sustaining the narrative by top Kenya Kwanza leadership that the former Head of State sunk the country into a hole that President William Ruto is currently trying to get the nation out of.
Ichung'wah also dared Uhuru to meet up with him so that he could repeat his accusations to his face.
"You can even arrange a meeting with him and I will repeat this. I told him he was leading the country in the wrong direction," he stated.
The Kenya Kwanza MP further remarked that the Kenya Kwanza government would form a Commission to investigate State Capture during Uhuru's tenure.
Ichung'wah also urged Kenyans to be patient with the government as it stabilizes the economy and fixes the mess Uhuru allegedly put the country in.
On Monday, Ichung'wah accused Uhuru of interfering with the Bipartisan Talks to stop the dialogue from reaching an amicable conclusion.
This comes after Uhuru on November 19 told off Kenya Kwanza leaders asking them to carry their own cross and stop dragging his name through the mud.
