Human is to error, Ukambani MPs tell President Uhuru Kenyatta over Ngilu.
MACHAKOS, KENYA: Members of Parliament from Ukambani have come to the rescue of embattled lands cabinet Secretary Charity Ngilu who faces possible sacking for violating the Constitution after parliament censured her.
The MPs, during the launch of the Machakos City, petitioned President Uhuru Kenyatta to pardon Ngiluover the ‘gross misconduct’ allegations leveled against her by the parliamentarians.
“Human is to error. If Ngilu erroneously made a decision that did not please many, she should be forgiven and allowed to perform her duties. No one is an Angel,” said Mavoko MP Patrick Makau.
“Mavoko residents and all Kenyans would like to be issued with title deeds. We should allow the Cabinet Secretary to perform her duties and stop petty politics,” Makau said.
Masinga MP Itwiku Mbai besieged the President to ensure Ngilu is protected from the MPs who are baying for her blood, saying the Cabinet Secretary is being hounded for her firm stand to clean the lands ministry dogged by corruption and massive land grabbing.
“We know mama is able and should be left to go on with her duties. We want Ngilu protected,” said Mbai.
Kangundo MP Katatha Maweu urged all Kamba politicians to unite for the sake of the region’s development, saying divisive politics will continue to plunge the region in poverty.
MPs wanted Ngilu fired for unconstitutional, irregular and un-procedural acts of creating offices and making arbitrary appointments, promotions and transfers of staff in the lands ministry.
This, could be a sign that Ngilu, who has been lobbying MPs to let her off the hook is winning the fight.-standardmedia
