Nairobi - Kieni MP Kanini Kega has accused Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) and police officers of being dragged into politics to humiliate warring parties.
Kega suspected foul play following reports that 15 Nyeri MCAs have been summoned by the EACC on Friday at the same time when an impeachment motion against Governor Nderitu Gachagua is scheduled to be debated.
The 15 are part of the 34 MCAs who have already signed the impeachment motion.
While accompanied by the County Assembly Majority Leader Duncan Gituanja, the MP dismissed the summons as witch hunt saying the Central region EACC deputy director, Jackson Mue is being used by politicians.
He said the summons are plot to reduce number of the MCAs supporting the governor’s ouster.
Gituanja said the Ward Representatives will not heed to the summons saying they will first deal with the ouster motion.
They were speaking after the burial of former Councilor James Ndirangu Gathogo in Gakawa location in Kieni East Sub-County.
According to a letter signed by Mue, the MCAs have been warned of penal consequences if they fail to honour the summons
