Jubilee MPs dare Keter to keep pushing for Waiguru's impeachment

01 October 2015, 11:53 Steve Njuguna

Nairobi - Three MPs from the Jubilee coalition have dared Nandi Hills MP, Alfred Keter to table an impeachment motion against Devolution cabinet secretary, Ann Waiguru.

The three dismissed the motion and warned Keter against tabling the motion, saying that it was deemed to fail.

The MPs; Waweru Nderitu (Ndaragwa), Samuel Gichigi (Kipipiri) and their Ol Jororok counterpart JM Waiganjo, termed the move as a waste of time as 'many legislators would not support it.'

Speaking to press in Nyahururu town Wednesday, the lawmakers urged the MP to concentrate on other important issues and stop dwelling on what they termed as witch hunt.

The MPs from Nyandarua County defended Waiguru against the loss of KES 792 million at the National Youth Service saying that the CS was the one who blew the whistle.

“Let the MP stand his ground and bring the motion in parliament. He will be surprised to see it flop as Kenyans have seen the fruits of NYS under the leadership of Ms Waiguru,” said Nderitu.

 The Ndaragwa MP noted that most youths now have jobs courtesy of the NYS programme.

“The crime rates have even dropped since the youths are now busy in nation building activities. Why are the opponents of Waiguru not seeing this?” he posed.

 Ol Joro Orok Mp, JM Waiganjo noted that the whole matter was just being politicized.

"We are reading politics in all this and we urge our fellow MPs whose areas have benefited from the NYS programme to oppose this motion. Let us focus on development matters and not politics,” he cautioned.

On his part, Gichigi said that Keter will not get the numbers once the motion is brought to the floor of the house.

On Tuesday, the Nandi Hills MP began a lobbying fellow MPs to back him in the motion to impeach CS Waiguru.

Already, 21 officials in the NYS have been suspended as investigation continues.

The Nandi Hills Legislator's first task would be to get 117 MPs to support his motion by appending their signatures to it.

Early last year, a similar motion had been brought by Igembe South MP, Mithika Linturi but he later dropped it at the eleventh hour citing pressure from the presidency.
