Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa has offered his latest salary of Kshs. 1 million to his constituents.
Taking to his official social media accounts on Friday October 7, 2022, the controversial lawmaker said that he was elected to work for his people but for the past one month, he has not done anything.
According to Didmus Barasa, he doesn’t deserve a salary for failing to work after being re-elected in the August 2022 polls.
He advised his constituents that they should approach him at take all the one month salary should they spot him in Kimilili.
Barasa noted that the Kimilili constituents should take the money and share among themselves.
“My people of Kimilili, mulinipigia kura nashukuru. Tangu munichague hakuna kitu nimewafanyia. Sisitahili mushahara wowote, sasa ile millioni moja nimelipwa ya mwezi hii nitawaletea. Mukiniona tu nimeingia kimilili mukuje muchukue na mugawane,” tweeted the MP.
Barasa was accused of shooting his opponents aide dead on the elections day.
He was arrested and appeared before a Kakamega court where he was charged with murder.
The lawmaker, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Barasa had been in police custody for two weeks. He said to have committed the offence against Brian Olunga, an aide to Kimilili politician Brian Khaemba on election day.
He had been detained at the Kisumu cells where he appeared in court virtually and the court allowed police to detain him for two weeks ahead of plea taking.
This was to allow police conduct postmortem on the body and collect other needed evidence for the case.
He was also taken for medical tests after which officials said he would take plea at a Kakamega court.
An autopsy on the body of Olunga showed he died of a pistol bullet which struck the right side of his head.
The autopsy showed Olunga died of profuse bleeding when the bullet got stuck in his head.
