I have no links to Ngilu, says MP on Karen land

14 November 2014, 17:23 William Korir

Nairobi - Tharaka MP Alex Mwiru says he has no links to lands CS Charity Ngilu and says he has not been protecting Karen land grabbers.

Mwiru is on the brink of being ejected at the chairman of parliament's lands committee after 24 of 28 members of the committee signed a petition to have him kicked out of office for allegedly supporting the actions of Ngilu to delay justice over the KES 8 billion 134 acre piece of land.

He was accused Thursday by members, led by vice chairman Moses Ole Sakuda of protecting Ngilu by failing to sign summons to have her appear in-front of the committee to answer to questions regarding the grabbing of the land.

Mwiru though Friday in a rejoinder, said that the accusations are false and that he has actually done more than his fair share to ensure that Ngilu appears before the committee.

" I ask you today, which committee has the CS appeared before apart from the one on lands?," he posed.

He added that any accusations regarding his conduct are all false and ill planned and that he would defend himself of the accusations of given a chance.

" Where is the proof that I have done anything wrong? There is none and I will say categorically that all the accusations are false and I will be willing to respond to them if given a chance," he added.

Sakuda had said that committee members felt cheated by Mwiru's actions.

" It is unfortunate that committee members feel let down and cheated about this process and so this committee has initiated a process of having a new chairman, he said.

Others felt that Muiru was a part of the Karen land grab fiasco.

" He has been thoroughly frustrating and tried his best to slow down the process and must go because there  are doubts as to whether his integrity in this matter is clean, an MP part of the committee that did not want his name mentioned told News24.

Muiru was not available when reached for comment.

Two companies, Muchanga Limited and Telesource LTD have both claimed ownership of the parcel of land which had already been subdivided and was already being developed.

Police have taken over the parcel of land following a court order stopping development from taking place.
