Jubilee MPs 'offered rewards' to withdraw from Waiguru motion

09 October 2015, 08:15 William Korir

Nairobi - Jubilee coalition MPs are being offered rewards to withdraw support from the impeachment motion set to be tabled against Devolution CS Anne Waiguru.

According to some MPs who spoke to News24 on condition of anonymity, the MPs stated that they had been told they will receive favour from the Jubilee hierarchy if they do not support it.

" I was called by someone senior in government and told that I will gain favour if I do not support the motion," an MP in support of the motion said.

Another said that he was asked to help dissuade MPs for the vote from going after Waiguru.

" I've been asked to speak to some of the MPs and tell them to not kill on of our own," he added.

The motion is being forwarded by Kericho MP Charles Keter who wants Waiguru to be held in account for the massive corruption taking place at the National Youth Service.

This also followed an admission by Speaker Justin Muturi that the house would go on with the motion despite a court order barring it, saying that separation of powers is key in the house.

" I have no grounds to stop it taking placer. That is where we are at the moment," he quipped.

So far, it is understood that 97 MPs have signed up for the motion.

To sail through the first phase, it needs 88 MPs and to impeach Waiguru and have her kicked out of office, the motion needs the support of 117 MPs.

The bill is set to be tabled by Keter next week.
