Friday August 10, 2018 - Leader of Majority in Parliament, Aden Duale, has said the Government will not allow MPs to table impeachment motions against Cabinet Secretaries.
Speaking during the graduation ceremony of 387 Personal Assistants and Researchers attached to MPs, Duale said some of the motions being floated in Parliament have no substantial grounds and are only meant to intimidate Government officials.
“I have nothing personal against any leader in this Parliament, neither am I protecting anyone, but an MP is out of order when he or she moots an impeachment motion without stating clear instructions,” Duale said.
“Grounds must be stated as specified in the Constitution and presented to the Office of the Clerk for consideration and approval”. Duale added.
Duale, who is also the Garissa Township MP, said most impeachment motions by MPs are “only meant to excite the public and will always flop when proposers fail to prosecute the matter up to the end”.
Duale spoke as MPs threatened to impeach Charles Keter (Energy), Rashid Echesa (Sports), Keriako Tobiko (Environment), Henry Rotich (National Treasury) and Sicily Kariuki (Health).
