Jubilee MP backed Juma but voted otherwise

14 June 2015, 16:45 William Korir

Nairobi - A Jubilee coalition MP that publicly supported the motion to have Monica Juma considered for the position of Secretary to the Cabinet voted otherwise.

Kigumo MP Jamleck Kamau was among the MPs who supported the motion to have Juma's nomination to the Cabinet approved as was noted by his comments in the house before the vote.

However, according to official records, Kamau voted not to have the period to consider Juma's nomination extended by 10 days as was the case for another 162 MPs.

Kamau though, insists that he was out of the house during the voting session and was locked out, after going out of the chambers and not getting in on time.

According to house rules, once a vote begins, no one is allowed into the chambers.

" I do not know what happened. I was outside and did not vote. I do not know how I ended up voting," he claims.

" Someone must have voted for me because I was speaking to the Treasury CS Henry Rotich while the vote went on," he defended himself.

Which means two things.

Kamau handed out his pin number to another MP, as the MPs have a secret code which which they can log onto the voting system with.

Or, he was in the house and voted.

Regardless, his vote would not have counted anyway, with 163 to 55 being the final verdict, something that observers insist must have been planned beforehand.

" It is likely that it was a discussion that was had beforehand, going by the numbers that voted for Juma's dismissal as well as the number of Jubilee coalition MPs who supported the vote," Political analyst Michael Njenga believes.

MPs decided not to front Juma's nomination, as she was deemed arrogant to MPs during her stint as the Permanent Secretary Interior Ministry.
