Waiguru motion to go on: Linturi

27 May 2014, 18:49

Nairobi - Igembe South MP Mithiki Linturi says that his motion to impeach devolution secretary Ann Waiguru is still on despite growing opposition.

According to Linturi, so far 179 MPs have signed the petition to impeach Waiguru over perceived abuse of office and destruction of the constitution.

Linturi said Tuesday that he had already petitioned the House Business Committee in parliament to push the petition forward as a matter of urgency.

" We have asked that it be pushed forward as a matter of urgency, he said.

" When parliament resumes Tuesday, hope is that it is one of the first agendas to be dealt with as a house, he added.

There is already growing opposition to the petition, with president Uhuru Kenyatta, his deputy William Ruto and a section of leaders across the divide asking that it be dropped.

Linturi though says that despite the apparent clamour for Waiguru, the petition would go on as planned.

" It will go on as planned and even though there is pressure, the truth must reign, he added.

Waiguru is accused of irregular appointments in her ministry but she has defended herself by saying that she has used the right procedures throughout.

Parliament resumes Tuesday next week after a four week recess and it is expected that the issue will be among the first up for debate upon resumption.
