Nyong'o asks MCA's to respect court's decision to reinstate Speaker

12 February 2015, 13:00 Arap Yego

Kisumu - Kisumu Senator, Prof Anyang' Nyong'o has asked Members of the County Assembly (MCA’s) from his region to respect the court's decision to reinstate their speaker.

The MCA’S last year impeached county assembly speaker, Ann Adul for gross misconduct, but she got a lifeline early this year when the Kisumu industrial court reinstated her and ordered that she should resume work immediately.

It has been reported that the same County representatives have vowed not to accept Adul to preside over the house sessions, which in essence means that the County assembly business will cease.

Prof Nyon’go in a press statement send to newsrooms Wednesday said the MCA’s must respect the law and let the speaker discharge her duties according to the constitution.

“I would like to appeal to the Kisumu County Government and County Assembly to respect the law and serve the people of the County selflessly following the recent decision by the court in the matter of the Speaker of the County Assembly,” said the Senator, who noted that the MCAs should follow the example of CORD leadership following the Supreme Court's decision on their presidential election petition in 2013.

“Even if there is an appeal pending, this should not hamper the work of the Assembly. Kisumu people are getting exhausted with unending wrangles carried out at the expense of public service delivery,” added Nyong’o.

In delivering her ruling in January, Lady Justice Helen Wasilwa said the impeachment of the Speaker was null and void.

The judge ruled that the MCA who presided over the impeachment motion did not follow the procedures allowed by the court.

The County assembly has 49 MCAs and 39 of them voted against Speaker Adul after the Nyakach ward representative, James Omollo, moved the impeachment motion.
