Jubilee after me, Ababu maintains

06 March 2015, 13:04 William Korir

Nairobi - The Jubilee coalition is to blame for the current corruption probe facing Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba, he maintains.

The ODM Secretary General has had his role as chairman of the Public Accounts Committee PAC in parliament suspended and the committee's activities put on hold.

Namwamba has been under pressure to explain himself over alleged bribery and corruption within the powerful committee after MPs complained of misappropriation of funds and abuse of office.

But the MP insists that he is innocent and that the culmination of events is one that has been set-up by members of the Jubilee coalition who are after him and his reputation.

" I am innocent of any charges. This is a well planned assault by the Jubilee coalition to finish my reputation," he said.

He insisted that he would fully participate in the investigations and that there would be nothing incriminating found at the end of the investigations.

" I am clean. There is nothing to hide," he added.

Ababu last week survived an impeachment motion against him, just managing a 14-13 result in his favour.

But after leader of Majority Aden Duale had on Wednesday placed a motion to have the actions of the PAC probed, Speaker Justin Muturi Thursday obliged to the motion.

" The Public Accounts Committee has for now suspended the Public Accounts Committee and its operations pending investigation by the Powers and Privileges Committee," a statement from Muturi's office read.

Members of Ababu's ODM have backed him to clear his name but minority chief whip Jakoyo Midiwo says that it is of importance that he clears his name of an charges leveled against him.

Midiwo, despite being a part of Ababu's ODM, says that the MP's alleged conduct or actions are risky and might give the whole house a bad name and thus he must be investigated and cleared of the charges so as to continue with his job.

" He must be cleared. I think that for the sake of the house as a whole and the integrity of the function this house plays, it is important that everyone be cleared," he said.

" Let us ensure that we have a house of integrity. We need it, he added.
