Senator Ledama came out to congratulate Mercy Tarus for her boldness in putting her leadership into account and offered her a job to work for her.
”Mercy Tarus, I would like you to work for me… speak your heart …the future belongs to candid youth! Let’s talk.’ Senator Ledama said on Thursday, August 10.
In response to Ledama, Mercy Tarus boldly rejected Senator Ole Kina’s job offer asking him to put his fellow senators to task over the Finland airlift scam.
”Mr. Ledama, before we can further this conversation, talk to your fellow Senators to bring the Uasin Gishu County Government to book and compel them to refund rightfully hard-earned money to the Citizens of Kenya. Maybe then, we can talk,’ Mercy responded.
Kenyans react to Mercy Tarus
Taru’s brevity drew mixed reactions, with some siding with her as others scolded the Kabarak University graduate for disrespecting senior citizens of this country.
Former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo joined the conversation in congratulating her.
In his message, Kabogo encouraged Mercy by stating that she had a bright future of even becoming Uasin Gishu Senator.
”This lady Mercy Traus will definitely be the next senator Uasin Gichu County. Go lady Go, fix this stuff from inside.
You make many people proud, especially in Eldoret,’ Kabogo responded.
”Her Independent mindset is encouraging about the next generation,” another Kenyan on twitter by the name Andy also replied.
”Does the Senator know the price of antidepressants?” Brian Yuri also tweeted.
”Maybe, he has been sent by his fellow senator to bribe you with a job paying 50k, yet that kind of money is a weekly stipend in your dream country.
If the good senator meant well, he should offer to pay for your tuition fees abroad,’ another Kenyan by the name Isaac K. reacted.
Mercy Tarus came into the limelight after she bravely confronted Uasin Gishu, Senator Jackson Mandago, Governor Jonathan Bii and his deputy John Barorot.
Mercy put the coun leadership to task after it emerged that some individuals may have colluded to siphon their money in a botched academic program.
Uasin Gishu Senator Jackson Mandago appeared before officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) where he recorded a statement regarding the saga.
Mandago has also appeared before the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC), owing to the fact that the county launched the academic program when he was the governor.
