Lang’ata MP Jalang’o rejects Finance Bill 2024

Lang’ata Member of Parliament Phelix Odiwuor well known as Jalang’o voted against the Finance Bill 2024 on the floor of the house.

The legislator confirmed that he arrived at the decision due to the fact the bill once passed will affect the less privileged Kenyans.

The decision by the MP comes at time when he had already fallen out with the main opposition party Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) following his visit to State House together with other leaders allied to the party without consent.

According to Jalang’o, his decision had already been communicated with President William Ruto and that he will answerable to the youth if he supports the bill. His vote shocked many Kenyans who expected a different result.

“First of all, I reject the Finance Bill, 2024. Immediately it touched everything around the common person like M-Pesa, cars, sanitary pads…I looked back and the whole generation in Lang’ata out here, having their voices so loud, even after the amendments, I had to make the choice that I’ve made today.

Out here is the Generation Z that I talk to everyday; I interact with them on Twitter, TikTok and everywhere…when most of you will have gone back to the villages, we will be with them here in Nairobi. Most of you know, I’m a friend to the President, I spoke to him and he knows very well that this is my stand.” he said
