Speaker blocking Waiguru ouster motion – Keter

keter-picNandi Hills MP Alfred Keter has accused National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi of blocking a motion seeking to impeach Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru.

Mr Keter claimed the Speaker has made dubious demands regarding the motion.

He said Mr Muturi had asked that he substantiate the reasons he wants the CS impeached.

He said the Speaker should allow MPs to scrutinise the issue of corruption in the Devolution ministry by approving the motion.

He said he had secured the support of 180 MPs, a number well above the 88 required.

“There is no requirement in Parliament’s standing orders that an MP moving a motion should substantiate. The same was not required during the impeachment of Education CS Jacob Kaimenyi. Why is Ms Waiguru getting special treatment?” Mr Keter said at a press conference on Wednesday.

The push for Ms Waiguru’s impeachment has been gathering momentum, with both Jubilee and Cord MPs supporting the bid to remove her.
