Duale survives censure motion as sponsor softens stance

07 August 2015, 15:00

Nairobi - Kieni MP, Kanini Kega has softened his stance on Majority Leader, Aden Duale’s ouster.

TNA party members led by the Kieni MP had tabled a motion in Parliament to discuss the conduct of National Assembly Majority Leader, Aden Duale which could have paved way for his ouster. 

Duale has been on the spot for his reckless utterances in Parliament as well as maternal slurs in public functions, which Kega said contravene the provisions of the Leadership and Integrity Act.

“This House expresses its dissatisfaction with the conduct of the Hon. Aden Duale and resolves to rebuke and censure him for his failure to adhere to the high standards of leadership and accountability expected of State officers,” read part of the motion.

Kega also cited Duale’s response to BBC in an interview where he was quoted saying that the government was in the process of negotiating with the Al Shabaab terror group contrary to Interior ministry’s stand.

“Hon. Duale needs to give the House details of the proposed negotiations since the country could not have negotiated with faceless people … Duale needs to shed more light on whether he is in control of terrorism targets and the schedules,” added Kega, who also cited Duale’s failure to give the list of Al Shabaab financiers as promised in April.

While speaking in Nyeri on Friday, Kega however revealed that the House had resolved to drop the motion and instead push for a law that would see families of those killed in terror attacks compensated by the government.

According to Daily Nation, the decision was reached Thursday during a meeting in Nairobi.
The new Bill comes weeks after female MPs called on the government to set up a special fund for widows and children of terror attack victims.
