KENYA Parliament Speaker Francis Ole Kaparo on Thursday warned Tigania East MP Peter Munya for taking President Yoweri Museveni’s campaign posters into the chamber, which was in breach of the rules.

This was after Parliament was told that a Kenyan printer, Joshua Muchungi Ncebere, who designed and produced Museveni’s 1996 presidential campaign posters, had yet to receive Ksh5M (about sh122m) which Museveni owes him.

But Kenya’s assistant minister for foreign affairs, Moses Wetangula, responding to a question on the matter, said he was aware of Ncebere’s alleged contract, but maintained that the Kenya government did not have enough information to compel Uganda to settle the arrears.

But Munya, irritated by the minister’s answer, displayed a poster of a smiling President Museveni as an exhibit of Ncebere’s work.

Speaker Kaparo warned Munya that he had breached the standing orders by sneaking the poster into the Chamber.

In clearing the air on the matter, Wetangula said the Uganda High Commission put the record straight that a secretary of the task force set up to handle Museveni’s campaign had established that the government did not enter into a contract with Ncebere. He said the ministry had asked Ncebere for details to pursue the matter.

Munya, while demanding action from Kenya on the matter, alleged that his constituent had run bankrupt after failing to pay a bank loan arising from the posters and that he had made several trips to Kampala to no avail.
