In the meeting that was held on parliament, the IMF officials are heard warning Kenyans of the consequences if the high borrowing rate that the country was going through by then.
"The trouble that we've seen is manageable. However, the trajectory is going to a place where it will not be sustainable and you will get into trouble eventually. We are warning that you might find yourself in a place where you will not be in a position to deal with. Investors might not come to Kenya because of the debt crisis,"part of the IMF official noted.
The officials warned that the high dent rate would eventually have a real impact to the country later and the country would feel the effects of it when some of the companies and investors turn down.
IMF officials also disclose that the country had been downgraded in terms of the rating to what was referred to as B2 which the official did not disclose what it meant by then.
Kimani Ichung'wa would later be removed as the chairperson of the committee together with other high profile leaders allied to deputy president William Ruto.
