Ugunja MP James Opiyo Wandayi has been elected the Chairman of National Assembly’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) after garnering 15 against 3 garnered by Nambale MP John Sakwa Bunyasi.
Kibwezi East MP Jessica Mbalu has also been elected as the Vice Chairperson of the same Committee.
Rarieda Mp Otiende Amollo who was his main competitor bowed out of the race citing frustrations from Cartels.
As first Ombudsman, I did all I could to hold Govt accountable. I had hoped to do so in Parliament as Chair of Parliamentary Accounts Committee, but the Cartels wouldn’t allow. One day, Parliament will serve the People!

The nameless cartels are believed to have been supporting the election of second term Ugunja MP Opiyo Wandayi.
PAC is one of the most lucrative committees in Parliament chaired by the opposition to check the government of the day,
