Junet Mohamed was defending himself against allegations of being involved in the KEMSA scandal.

Suna East Member of Parliament (MP) Junet Mohamed has spoken for the first time after weeks of going off the public.

Junet, who was vocal in the run-up to the August 9 General Election, had maintained a low-key profile especially after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) declared William Ruto as the president-elect.

The legislator was upbeat his principal Raila Odinga would win the presidency. He however went mum after the unforeseen turn of events on August 9.

The lawmaker spoke on Saturday, September 10, while responding to allegations that he was among the beneficiaries of the KEMSA scandal.

Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot 

The claims were leveled by Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot who said the Ruto administration would ensure he (Junet) returns the money he allegedly stole through the KEMSA heist.

"You will return the KEMSA money. That at least we shall make sure you do," said Cheruiyot.

Junet would however not be cowed as he came up with a savage rebuttal against the Kericho senator.

"He (Cheruiyot) thinks now that his cousin has become president he can intimidate people. We are ready for him…If he thinks we shall succumb he is shall face a rude shock," tweeted Junet.
