Lawyer Miguna Miguna has told Rarieda MP Otiende Amollo to resign if at all he does not want to be a member of parliament.

He told off the MP after the lawmaker said in a local show that being a legislator has made him broke.

“I have been the Ombudsman and I have also been in private practice. I have never been broke like I am now as an MP,”  Amollo said in the Am Live show on NTV on Tuesday.

Though the legislator earns a salary and allowances of more than Sh1 million a month, he says that he has not been able to buy anything.

“If you take the mortgage for Sh20 million you can’t take the car loan because the deductions on the salary are high because of the short repayment period. I’m sure there are some of my colleagues who have taken the loan and their payslip reads zero,” Amollo said.

The advocate was defending MPs proposal to get more benefits which include a night allowance which will earn them between Sh18,200 and Sh24,000 daily.
