ODM MP allowed back after eviction

19 July 2016, 18:05 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Ugunja MP Opiyo Wandayi's ban from Parliament over misconduct has been lifted. 

Speaker Justin Muturi made the decision Tuesday following recommendations by the Powers and Privileges Committee stated that the MP, who has been out of the house for the last four months has received punishment enough.

Wandayi was suspended March 31 for refusing to adhere to the Speaker's orders to leave the House after disrupting president Uhuru Kenyatta's state of the nation address. 

He used a whistle to disrupt the President and was forced out of the house after Muturi invoked Standing order 111.

The standing order ensured that the MP was barred from accessing the precincts of parliament and denied parliamentary privileges including sitting allowances at the committee and in the chamber, and foreign and local travels. In addition, the MP was also not allowed to use his office and his security was withdrawn. 

Wandayi was delighted to be back.

" I am sure they missed me in the house and will be glad to have me back," he joked when contacted by News24.

He had threatened serious legal action after the High Court nullified his suspension but Muturi refused to invoke it, saying that the legislature and Judiciary must respect each other.
