LSK Want Sonko to be punished after attack on AG
Lawyers want Speaker Kenneth Marende to punish Makadara MP Gedion Mbuvi for allegedly assaulting Attorney General Githu Muigai and other parliamentary staff.
The Law Society of Kenya has written to Marende following an incident in which the AG and Mbuvi were involved in a confrontation in Parliament Buildings.
Last week, Mbuvi confronted the AG and accused him of protecting a land grabber, but Parliament orderlies intervened. LSK, through its CEO Apolo Mboya, argues the confrontation was discourteous, disrespectful, and not expected from an MP.
“Members of Parliament are State Officers and Article 75 of the Constitution makes specific provisions regarding ‘conduct of State officers’ it provides that a State officer shall behave, whether in public and official life, in private life, or in association with other persons, in a manner that avoids demeaning the office the officer holds.”
Mbuvi has dismissed the accusations and stated he was fighting for the poor. Prof Muigai has written to CID to investigate the Makadara MP of extortion of money over a piece of land valued at Sh360 million in Muthangari, Nairobi.
In a letter dated September 21 to the CID Director Ndegwa Muhoro, Muigai informed him that Mbuvi had written to the Minister for Lands James Orengo and copied the AG alleging that the parcel of land LR 209/14310 IR NO 120811 was a public utility vested upon the Kenya Police, but had been grabbed by Kanorero River Farm limited.
Muigai said he received a separate letter from the director of Kanorero Farm, a Mr Maina Chege, who asserts that he is the rightful owner of the property while denying Mbuvi’s allegations.
The AG says Mbuvi’s complaint is inaccurate and based on an agreement for sale of the property, which has not been concluded.
