South Mugirango MP Silvanus Osoro assured constituents of his safety in the midst of backlash over his continued support for the rejected Finance Bill 2024.

Osoro took to social media on Sunday where he shared a clip of him interacting with locals in South Mugirango, where he bought them mahindi choma.

One of the residents who was passing by asked the MP if anyone had had an issue with him over his support for the punitive bill, to which Osoro said he is okay.

“Has anyone messed you up so far?” the resident asked.”Here I’m okay. No one can dare do that to me,” Osoro responded.

In another video clip, the National Assembly Chief Whip is seen interacting with youths from his constituency, discussing recent protests and the finance bill.

Osoro asks the youth, most of them Gen Z, if they are planning to attack him and other leaders who supported the bill.

The MP jokes that Gen Z are now ruling the country, to which the youth laugh and promise to be peaceful and protect people’s property.

Osoro and over 200 MPS irked Kenyans when they voted in favour of the bill, which led to invasion of Parliament by angry protesters.

The protests turned ugly, leading to the killing of 41 people by the police.

President William Ruto rejected the bill in totality, saying his government will be compelled to take austerity measures to finance its spending.

Kenyans have accused the Ruto administration of punitive taxation and corruption, something the President says he is willing to work on.
