Chaotic MPs will lose their seats, says EACC

19 December 2014, 13:11 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - MPs who caused chaos in parliament during the charged debate on the controversial Security Bill will lose their seats, the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission EACC has said.

The EACC through CEO Mumo Matemu says that the chaos was unacceptable and that those MPs found culpable for the disruption of house business and eventual chaos will be expelled for good from the house.

Matemu insisted that despite laws that ensure MPs are not charged for either utterances or actions undertaken whilst within the house, the commission has the mandate to ensure that such actions are dealt with.

" It is not in any way acceptable that such actions can go unpunished and especially in the public eye. They are supposed to be role models and what we saw yesterday was anything but," he said.

He added that the commission would institute investigations that might see guilty MPs lose their seats.

" It is possible. We will push for that when investigations are complete," he added.

Parliament descended into fully fledged war Thursday over the controversial bill, with Speaker Justin Muturi eventually passing the bill whilst surrounded by security personnel.

Earlier, CORD senators Johnstone Muthama and Moses Wetangula had been roughed up by a group of Jubilee MPs, whilst Deputy Speaker Joyce Laboso was also harassed after water was poured on her and parliamentary clerks.

It is also understood that there was a fist fight between MPs in the house after the morning session in the house had been disrupted as tensions and emotions boiled over.
