MP threatens to move censure motion against Ngilu

17 January 2014, 11:46 Joseph Njung’eh

Kieni - Kieni Member of Parliament James Mathenge-Kanini Kega has hinted that he will soon forward a censure motion in the floor of the house against Lands Cabinet Secretary Charity Ngilu.

Mathenge said for the second time, Ngilu had acted against the law through irregular appointments of officers to fill various offices in the ministry.

The MP spoke Friday to journalists after commissioning a road that has been earmarked for upgrading in his constituency.

He said that, should the probe on the appointments by parliamentary committee on lands find Ngilu culpable, he will move a censure motion against the CS and seek support from his Jubilee colleagues in the house.

“This time people will be surprised because the motion to throw out the cabinet secretary will come from the ruling coalition and not the opposition as some would expect,” said Mathenge.

He added that the move by the Cabinet Secretary to take the names of the appointees to the Public service Commission is against the constitution, accusing her for ignoring the due process to serve personal interests.

He claimed that since the appointment of cabinet secretaries, Lands ministry is one of the few that has hardly delivered anything due to bad leadership under Charity Ngilu.

The Mp urged President Uhuru Kenyatta to either sack or conduct reshuffles to such leaders who cannot deliver as he lately promised.

Mathenge further requested the President and his Deputy to stretch cabinet slots from the current 18 to 22 which is the maximum number required by the law in order to accommodate the youthful persons.

“We want those aged 35 years and below to be appointed in the cabinet in order to make them comfortable because they are feeling left out of the government important positions,” said Mathenge.
