Nyeri leaders protest removal of Tetu MP from Defence chair

07 March 2016, 13:19 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Nyeri leaders have protested reports that Tetu MP Ndung’u Gethenji will be ousted from the leadership of Parliamentary Defence and Foreign Relations Committee.

Led by Women Representative Priscillah Nyokabi, the leaders said Nyeri has no any other senior position in government other that of Gethenji.

She said Nyeri should not lose the seat.

She was echoed by Kieni MP Kanini Kega who said removing Gethenji from the chairmanship of the 28-member committee will disrupt house operations.

“We have only one year to the next elections and therefore Gethenji should be allowed to complete his term. The committee’s activities will be disrupted since the move is not good,” said Kega.

He however advised Gethenji to seek consensus with the committee members to iron the emerging differences.

“Unfortunately we are not members of the Defence committee and thus we cannot vote to retain him but we are asking the members to give their chairman time,” said Nyokabi who serves at the House Legal Committee.

Kega seats at the Public Accounts Committee.

The two parliamentarians made the remarks at Mbiriri grounds in Kieni where they noted that the County elected leaders were working together.

Elsewhere, a group of MCAs and community leaders from the County said the looming ouster is political scheme by CORD and Kiambu MPs.

Led by Wamagana MCA Jesse Kamuri and County KNUT chairman Karinga Munuhe, the group said they would reconsider their political position if Gethenji is ousted.

They asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to intervene and solve the matter noting that it will divide the Jubilee coalition.

“Nyeri County does not have any senior position in government. Engineer Michael Kamau was sacked and we remained quiet. We shall not keep quite again,” said Kamuri.
