Nakuru MCAs wrangles far from over

17 March 2015, 10:17 Chepkwony Robert

Nakuru - Wrangles and fights are far from over at the Nakuru County Assembly as embattled former Majority Leader Njenga Mwaura (Mosop) and former deputy Speaker Samuel Tonui (Neisuit) vowed to fight for justice on the floor of the House Monday.

For Mwaura, who despite having political parties’ tribunal order to reinstate hi, but overhauled by Njane Waithuke in support of the speaker Susan Kihika, says he will fight for justice.

“For sure, what transpired at the County assembly last week was shameful. We have vowed to end the feud at the assembly following a directive by deputy President for the assembly to resolve the conflict. But then, what will remain is that we will not allow the speaker to continue sidelining others in the House,” said Mwaura on Monday.

Former speaker Samuel Tonui said the House will need to scrutinise how the assembly is conducting its affairs, more so the ‘dictatorial’ nature of the speaker, Susan Kihika.

“My colleague has expressed well that we will end the feud, but apart from the passing of the law to remove me from power, there is plan to table the motion Tuesday on the floor of the House that seeks to reshuffle the House committee chairs and members, so as to deny those fronting justice,” said Tonui, adding that the move would instead destabilize calls for end of the wrangles.

He says they will not relax until they see that order is restored in the House, adding that if they reshuffle the committee, it will not work for them.

“If you change the law so as to frustrate someone, it will not be good. This reminds us of the 1976 ‘change the constitution movement’ that sought to change constitution to stop the retired president Moi from taking over from the late Mzee Kenyatta,” said Tonui, adding Susan Kihika’s father, the late politician Kihika Kimani was behind the move.

Gilgil MCA Jane Wangui, on her part, said Tuesday’s plan is to have the supplementary budget in the floor of the House, as opposed to the plan by the opponents to table the committees’ list.

“We are supposed to have the supplementary budget to be discussed Tuesday. The budget is holding a number of project’s funds. The speaker has kept the budget in her office for the last three months,” she said.
