Nairobi - MPs want Lands Cabinet Secretary Charity Ngilu kicked out of office for her inability to handle matters in her ministry.
The MPs claim that Ngilu has repeatedly failed to show her nous in handling land matters in the country and have also questioned her role in the 134 acre KES 8 billion piece of land in Karen Nairobi.
They say that Ngilu has also severally failed to heed summons to the committee probing land issues in the country and accuse her of covering up misdemeanours.
Led by assistant chairman in the lands commitee of the national assembly Moses Ole Sakuda, they say than Ngilu has done her time and that they will institute impeachment measures to have her kicked out of office with immediate effect.
The handling of touchy matters in Lamu as well as her well documented spat with the national lands commission NLC have led the MPs to their conclusion.
" The committee has noted with great concern that the CS has chosen to ignore and not take her responsibilities seriously," they said Tuesday in Nairobi.
They also accused Ngilu of ignoring parliamentary summons.
" Further, despite numerous invitations and correspondences with the committee most which she commits herself to, then she fails to honour her word," they added.
Sakuda went on to give his view that Ngilu was simply not the right person to deal with matters land in the country.
" The land issues have not been sorted out in this country hence she is not the right person anymore to deal with any land matters. The committee is therefore considering starting the disciplinary process actions that will lead to impeachment of the CS for Lands," he said.
Ngilu has been under pressure from a section of leaders over her handling of the Karen land and her shifting of positions on it.
She has also been named by the opposition as being one of those that have taken part in the grabbing of the Karen land, a case which is currently pending in court.
