Nakuru - Member of Parliament for Bahati constituency, Onesmus Kimani Ngunjiri has accused the Nakuru County Assembly Speaker Susan Kihika of fighting elected leaders, especially the Senator and MPs in the county.
Ngunjiri said the Speaker has been unleashing words meant to castigate MPs and the Senators in public functions.
Speaking on Sunday during a fundraiser at the ACK Kiamunyeki church, Ngunjiri termed the Speaker’s gestures as dictatorial.
“The Speaker's remarks during the burial of the late nominated MCA Damaris Mbuthia, she spent most of her time hurling insults at MPs and Senators. We are advising her to consider leaving the Speaker’s seat vacant and join politics,” said Ngunjiri, who further accused her of meddling with development matters in the county.
Ngunjiri said the Speaker stayed in the US for long and was not privy to the issues affecting the residents of Nakuru, adding that she attempted the Bahati constituency seat but was defeated but later succeeded in becoming the first county Speaker.
Susan Kihika is the daughter of the late Kimani Kihika, an influential politicians during KANU regime, with Ngunjiri claiming that the speaker was following the footsteps of her late father.
