, NAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 10 – Igembe South Member of Parliament Mithika Linturi on Tuesday said that he would table his motion seeking to impeach Devolution Cabinet Secretary Ann Waiguru on Wednesday but after consultation with MPs who had initially appended their signatures in support.
Speaking in Parliament on Tuesday afternoon he said he would host MPs who signed his motion on Wednesday at 7.30am at a Nairobi hotel.
“I am paying for breakfast tomorrow at 7.30 in the morning. I have said time and again that this is a motion that belongs to the signatories and not just to me alone,” he explained.
Earlier, there was laughter when Leader of the Majority Coalition Aden Duale asked Linturi to explain who will foot the breakfast meeting bills.
“Linturi was not very clear, he is calling for a breakfast meeting; we want to know who is paying for this breakfast,” he asked. “We want to know in the eyes of transparency.”
In response Linturi said he would foot the bills but in a way that further left the house tickled.
“For any MP to get elected to come to this House, it is common knowledge that, that man must be a man of means, I am not a man of small means. If I was a man of small means, then I would have been compromised long time ago,” he said.
Jubilee members have been urging Linturi to drop the motion but he has insisted that it has to go to the floor of the House where members can decide its fate.
He has also maintained that he cannot withdraw the motion without consulting the 200 MPs who signed it.
In his motion, Linturi is alleging that Waiguru unconstitutionally dismissed Kiplimo Rugut as National Youth Service Director-General and Gor Semelang’o as Chairman of the Youth Enterprise Fund.
