Jubilee MPs: Ready for CORD's motion to impeach Kenyatta

19 May 2014, 20:37 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - MPs from the ruling Jubilee coalition have vowed to oppose the proposed motion intending to impeach the President by their counterpart legislators in the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy(CORD) who allege that the Head of the State is acting against the constitution.

More than10 MPs led by the Senate Majority Leader, Kithure Kindiki, said it is time for the two coalitions to unite in addressing the looming insecurity situation in the nation.

"We are ready for the proposed motion to impeach the President. CORD'S move to hold demonstrations against the government for the current insecurity situation won't resolve the problem,"said Kindiki.

"The era of holding mass demonstrations is gone instead we should engage as elected leaders regardless of political affiliations and improve security for our people," he added.

Kindiki warned opposition leaders against spreading incitement during public rallies when carried away by emotions.

He noted that the government is doing its best to combat insecurity hence should not be politicized.

Kikuyu MP, Kimani Ichungwa said the Opposition should respect the established constitutional institutions without calling for their disbandment yet they were part and parcel of their creation.

"CORD should not take this country to the era of demonstrations in resolving matters. The call for disbandment of IEBC and now the resignation of Attorney General is an inappropriate approach," said Ichungwa.

He added that the Opposition should not announce the return of the former Prime Minster Raila Odinga from US  in a manner that creates tension but be allowed to come silently.

The Jubilee MPs were reacting to CORD's sentiments during the Sunday's Kibera rally where the Opposition vowed to conduct nationwide demonstrations over the governments decision to pay the controversial Anglo-leasing saga and the government's failure to combat looming insecurity.
