Duale blames Waiguru's impeachment motion on opposition
28 May 2014, 10:14
Nairobi – The National Assembly’s Majority Leader, Aden Duale has held that the proposed motion to impeach the Devolution and Planning Cabinet Secretary, Anne Waiguru is not derived from Jubilee coalition’s collective decision but an individual MP’s opinion.
Duale said Igembe South MP, Mithika Linturi’s motion to oust Waiguru, which has won the support of Nandi Hills MP, Alfred Keter among other legislators, is majorly being pushed by individuals who are against the government.
“Keter is being used by a section of those against the Government. He needs to understand that Jubilee coalition represents the interests of both TNA and URP parties and the Kenyan citizens,” said Duale.
He challenged Keter to present his grievances in Parliament where appropriate solutions would be given other than being used to cause conflicts in the alliance.
Duale reiterated that talks are in progress for Linturi to reconsider his move to table the motion against the Devolution CS before June 6 when parliament reopens.
Waiguru is accused of both gross misconduct and violation of the constitution in addition to intimidating and threatening public officers under her.
Moreover, Duale challenged the opposition coalition to help the government in offering alternative solutions to the problems facing the nation other than blaming and criticizing its efforts.
“Cord leaders who have been holding a series of rallies to criticize the Jubilee Government should stop the blame game and offer solutions to the problems facing the country. They should allow the Jubilee Government to serve its term and save politics for 2017,” said Duale.
Duale was addressing the press at the Parliament Buildings in response to a series of rallies being held by Cord coalition ahead of the return of the former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga from his US trip.
