Muturi stops attempt to punish whistling CORD MPs

14 April 2016, 22:30

Nairobi - Speaker Justin Muturi has stopped an attempt to punish CORD MPs who whistled at President Uhuru Kenyatta in Parliament.

According to The Standard, Muturi told Jubilee lawmaker Anthony Kimaru Mutahi (Laikipia East), who wanted the five MPs 'named', parliamentary parlance for punishment that comes with an automatic three-day suspension will mean that he will be punishing the lawmakers twice for the same offence.

Mutahi had pinpointed MPs John Mbadi (Suba), Gladys Wanga (Homa Bay), Tom Kajwang’ (Ruaraka), Simba Arati (Dagoretti North) and Fred Outa (Nyando) as MPs who “misbehaved” when they pulled out whistles and blew them inside the debating chamber and in the process disrupted the presidential address for 30 minutes.

The Speaker said that naming them afresh will be subjecting them to double jeopardy, for us to continue, I consider it fair that what happened on that day was sufficient.

Speaking to the Daily Nation, Ugunja MP Opiyo Wandayi who has been kicked out of the house for a year stated that he had not regret in whistling at the President.

He stated that he had a right to disregard the head of state if he wanted to and that no one could stop him.
