We have no interest in impeaching President Uhuru – UDA allied MPs

Published

on

On Friday, MPs Alice Wahome (Kandara) and Sylvanus Osoro (South Mugirango) said the judgement was a big win for the constitution and sovereignty of the people of Kenya.

“We celebrate the judiciary. They have redeemed the nation from the shackles of dictatorship.  You cannot make the constitution-making process your own bid. The document belongs to Kenyans. Ordinary Kenyans have been talking about all these issues,” said Wahome.

Wahome said the Head of State should make amends after threatening the constitution by first approving the appointment of 41 new judges who were forwarded to him in mid-2019.

“Our team is not interested in the impeachment process but we need President Uhuru Kenyatta to come out clear on some issues. The president was found to have breached the integrity and provisions of chapter six of the constitution. The Head of State has violated the constitution. Let him start by appointing judges. He has failed an honorary duty,” Wahome added.

According to Osoro, the Bill was gazetted against the wishes of ordinary citizens.

“We are on record in parliament that we wanted to know who gave the president powers to initiate such a process. They have wasted public resources to change the law illegally, “said Osoro.

Osoro said the president should explain how monies spent in the process will be recovered, and provide an outline on how the court’s concerns shall be resolved.

“Any Kenyan can push the motion to impeach the president, but for now we have better things to do. The arrogance by some leaders, surrounding the president, has been put on hold. The blame is squarely on the country’s Attorney General. The brave judges have given this country time to celebrate. This is a jurisprudence across the world. Give people options on what they want to change,” added Osoro.

On Tuesday morning, pictures of the signpost circulated on social media, showing how it was burnt using old tires.

Nairobi County Government named the road in May after Atwoli, in a ceremony led by the Acting Governor, Ann Kananu alongside other county officials.During the ceremony of recognition, Atwoli said it was in honour of his service to Kenyan workers.

As seen from the tweets, people are praising Mr. Kibaki for being the best minister for finance in the Republic of Kenya. People are saying that Kibaki is the person who boosted the economy of this country.

“Mwai Kibaki borrowed KSh 244.8 Billion in his first 7 years in office while Uhuru Kenyatta has borrowed KSh 5.17 Trillion in his first 7 years in office. Worrying trend perhaps,” said Mr. Ninja

“During Kibaki’s time we used to have a budget deficit of 400B that was easily raised by the Judiciary, other govt fees, and small borrowing…now we have a deficit of 1.7 Trillion. The deficit is bigger than Kibaki’s last entire budget. Tano Terror! Kusema na kutenda.” Said Mama JJ.

“Kibaki did12 good years in Finance.. 9 of those Vice president….Wow! Guy knew everything government for sure.” Said Mr. Paul Mwago

“Kibaki was a great Finance Minister and the best President in history. He was a finance Minister for 12 years; tells us about his competency in the field. Working on a budget of less than 200 Million though must have been tough,” said Mr. Bethwell Cheruyot
