Ababu refuses to apologize to fellow MPs

15 April 2015, 16:38 William Korir

Nairobi - Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba has refused to apologize to fellow MPs over allegations that they were involved in bribery and has thus been suspended from the National assembly for four days.

The MP had been ordered Tuesday by deputy speaker Joyce Laboso to apologize to fellow MPs for accusing them of bribery or face punishment from the house leadership.

However, the MP, who produced a secret recording to help clear his name of the allegations, refused to do so Wednesday, saying that his conscience would not allow him to do so.

" If indeed this House wishes to assist the EACC in executing its constitutional mandate, I ask that do not engage in any activities that will amount to interfering with its probe," he said.

" Let it interrogate the information, that information includes what I have shared. For avoidance of doubt, I want to declare before you Madame Speaker, which I will not apologize for that information," he added.

Ababu and four other MPs had earlier in the week been banned from the Public Accounts Committee PAC, which has been disbanded and will not be allowed to be in the new Committee which will be formed in the coming weeks.

The house Majority and Minority leaders have in the meantime been given time to choose new members of the Committee.

Ababu was thus suspended from the house for four days.

Two other MPs Omondi Anyanga and James Bett were reprimanded and pardoned after they apologized for making the unsubstantiated allegations.

Nakuru Town West MP Samuel Arama was not reprimanded but was asked to tender an apology for speaking about parliamentary issues in the media.
