Nairobi - A section of Jubilee members of Parliament from Nakuru County have threatened to file an impeachment motion against Interior Cabinet Secretary, Major Gen. (Rtd.) Joseph Nkaissery if he fails to effect the court order barring the CORD coalition from holding anti -IEBC protests on Monday.
Led by Nakuru east MP David Gikaria, the MPs said that Nkaissery will be proving to be incompetent if he fails to stop CORD from holding protests on Monday.
While addressing a press conference in Nakuru town on Saturday, the legislators warned Nkaissery that he risks losing his job if he dares to allow CORD leaders and their supporters to protest.
Gikaria said that it is Nkaissery's responsibility to make sure that court orders are effected and obeyed.

"We are warning Nkaissery that we will send him home if he fails to stop the CORD protests. The court order is there and it's his work to ensure that it is effected and if he fails to do so then members of Parliament from Nakuru will be filing a no-confidence motion against him," said Gikaria.
"Nkaissery must be put on notice and do all he can to ensure that CORD respects the court order or else he will be shown the exit door," he added.
Gikaria also warned that Jubilee supporters will come out to counter CORD protesters if they dare come out on Monday to protest.
"We are ready to face them and if they cannot respect the court order, then we will force them to respect us," he said.
