Governor Mutua in hot soup for demeaning Senate Speaker in public

17 September 2015, 09:36 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – Senators are up in arms with the Machakos Governor, Alfred Mutua for demeaning the Senate Speaker, Ekwe Ethuro by deliberately denying him chance to address mourners during the burial of Senator Mike Mbuvi’s father in Machakos.

The senators pointed out that Mutua’s unbecoming behavior of disregarding and disrespecting other leaders reveals his “primitive power obsession” and threatened to take action against him if he doesn’t offer a public apology for his misconduct.

Senator James Orengo (Siaya) who raised the matter during the House proceedings said Mutua’s move to deny Ethuro chance to address the gathering was an embarrassment to the Speaker and an intimidation to the Senate, which is mandated to oversee County operations.

Senator Boni Khalwale (Kakamega) concurred with Orengo’s concern and pleaded with Ethuro to direct the Senate House Majority Leader, Kithure Kindiki to find out reasons that led to the incident and come up with the report for action to be taken.

Senator Kipchumba Murkomen (Elgeyo Marakwet) told the House that he had reminded Mutua to introduce Ethuro to make his address but considered himself superior than the Speaker and ignored the plea.

“Mutua murmured that the Speaker was so junior to be invited by him to address the mourners and instead went ahead to invite Kalembe Ndile and Wavinya Ndeti,” said Murkomen.

Senator Moses Wetang’ula (Bungoma), who is also the Senate Minority Leader, warned that Mutua’s continued conduct of extending his County’s Maendeleo Chap Chap initiative to neighboring counties such as Makueni without the host's consent intends to demean them.  

“Mutua is known for his cheap theatrics. The Machakos Governor’s unbecoming behavior of demeaning the Senate Speaker was affront to the dignity of the Speaker’s office and the Senate as a House,” said Wetang’ula.

He claimed that Mutua was misappropriating taxpayers’ money by traversing other counties in the name of extending development through his Maendeleo Chap Chap initiative.

The Senate Majority Leader, Kithure Kindiki also expressed his frustration by Mutua’s snub and pledged to pursue the matter within a week for appropriate action to be taken.

“I am not aware of any civilization where people in power can be cheap, primitive, backward, and fraudulent and a conman. I will pursue the matter personally for the Senate to be told who directed and encouraged for the Speaker to be demeaned,” said Kindiki.
