House Committee threatens to sue Kimunya

12 February 2014, 12:38 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - Parliamentary Public Investment Committee (PIC) has threatened to sue former Transport minister, Amos Kimunya for failing to show up for the second time in the ongoing probe into the controversial standard gauge rail project.

The Committee’s Chairman, Aden Keynan asked the National Assembly Clerk, Justin Bundi to advertize in the newspapers for Kimunya to respond to PIC’s summons without any defiance on claims that he is not a State officer to shed light on the railway tender.

“ Kimunya must attend and there is no excuse to that. I am ordering the clerk to send another summon to him through the sergeant-at-arms, send another copy on the email he used last week and place an advert in the papers communicating the same summons,” Keynan said.

Keynan warned that should the former Kipipiri MP fail to appear before the committee for the third time, PIC will employ the Constitution’s provisions and standing orders that grants criminal charges against anybody who defies lawful summons.

“Our letter to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) will be final for Kimunya’s prosecution. However, given now we have not reached there, let’s give Hon. Kimunya one more chance and if he doesn’t show up then these summons will be part of our evidence to the DPP,” said Keynan.

Last week, Kimunya responded to PIC’s earlier summons in a letter to Senior Deputy Clerk, Michael Sialai stating that since other relevant government officers with access to the information required in the railway tender probe had appeared before the committee, he does not have any new information to assist in the investigations.
