NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 3 – Viwandani Member of County Assembly Sam Nyang’wara is set to make another attempt to table Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero’s ouster motion on Tuesday.
An attempt by Nyang’wara to table the motion last week was thwarted after CORD MCAs ganged up and roughed him up before he sought protection from the Sergeant-at-Arms.
He told Capital FM News that the incident has renewed his conviction and zeal and says that he will not be cowed in his desire.
“They have not broken my spirit. I am now even more determined to table my motion since I believe that my opponents have something to hide and it must come to light,” he stated. “Last week, I was taken off guard since I was not prepared but this time round I will come ready for any eventuality.”
According to the MCA, Kidero has violated the Constitution by failing to implement the Ward Development Fund.
During the tabling of the motion last week, Nyang’wara was attacked and roughed up by Dandora Phase IV MCA Dan Oria immediately he took to the floor.
Other CORD members joined and beat him up. This is not the first attempt to impeach Kidero.
In September 2013, Karura Ward Representative Kamau Thuo introduced a motion to impeach him for allegedly slapping Nairobi Woman Representative Rachael Shebesh.
The motion died a natural death.
It requires two thirds of the 127 MCAs to remove Governor Kidero.
