Nairobi - The planned impeachment motion against Devolution CS Anne Waiguru is likely to go on despite a court order stating that it should not.
According to Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi, Parliament cannot and will not be stopped from playing its role by the Judiciary.
He however stated that he had yet to receive any court order stating that the Waiguru motion is barred in the meantime.
" I have not seen it. I have heard that it exists in the media and that is all. Nevertheless, Parliament cannot be stopped from undertaking its role by the Judiciary," he added.
According to the High Court order, MPs have been barred from planning to impeach Waiguru after an application by the Constitution Implementation Commision CIC which stated that the house has no power to impeach any Cabinet Secretary.
MPs led by Makueni member Daniel Maanzo and Kericho's Charles Keter have been lobbying MPs to impeach Waiguru for her role in massive corruption in the Devolution Ministry which she heads.
Waiguru, unlike other CS' previously named in similar positions has refused to step aside from office to pave way for investigations.
