National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula suspended the seven who are accused of causing mayhem during his communication that retained Nominated MP Sabina Chege as the deputy minority whip.
In the heated session that took place in the house one MP was reportedly injured after fights broke out in the national Assembly forcing the Speaker to suspend the sitting inorder to contain the situation.
On resume of the sitting MPs Millie Odhiambo , Rosa Buyu , Chege and TJ Kajwang were kicked out for a period of two weeks after the speaker invoked the standing orders.
While the likes of Fatuma Muyanzi (Malindi), and Catherine Omanyo (Busia) were barred from the house sittings for a period of five days while and Joyce Kamene was ordered out for a period two sittings.
“’I am saddened at what happened this afternoon, I have consistently refrained myself from invoking standing orders relating to the discipline of the house,” Wetangula said.
“The said members among other things defied a ruling of the speaker, made disruptive utterances, used violence against a member of the house and acted in a manner to the serious determent of the dignity of the house,” he ruled amid boos from MPs.
The presences of biased was hired in the house that led to more field of questions to weather the words, spoken or laud out were rather true or false
“Things cannot continue in this manner in this house anymore, and we have decided to bring a motion of impeachment against the person of Moses Wetangula as the speaker, and we expect him to prioritize that motion,”said Wandayi.
The Deputy Minority Leader Robert Mbui accused Speaker Wetangula of acting under the whims of the majority coalition as it seemed unfair to the minority side of view and need closure.
“The main issue became the problem that the speaker wants the majority to dictate who will lead the minority, we have made a decision who we want to lead us, it’s not logical and it’s not moral, if I was Sabina I would have resigned, we won’t allow the majority to continue controlling us,” said the deputy majority leader.
In his ruling over the issue, Speaker Wetangula indicated that he cannot effect the changes by the Azimio Coalition Parliamentary Group meeting given conservatory orders given on petition filed in Kiambu Court barring the changes
Wetangula ruled that the letter by Minority Leader seeking to have Chege replaced by Embakasi West MP David Mwenje will not take effect until the conservatory orders have been set aside.
“Until and unless further information is provided that this court order has been varied or set side, the court order effectively suspends the decision by the minority party on the replacement of Sabina Chege as the minority whip.
