Order blocking MPs’ move to impeach Waiguru yet to reach Speaker Muturi

National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi on Tuesday said he has not yet received an order barring the impeaching Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru but bristled at the idea that the Judiciary could stop Parliament from doing its job.

Mr Muturi was reacting to an inquiry from Makueni MP Daniel Maanzo, who is backing a Motion by Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter for the removal of the Cabinet Secretary, on whether it would proceed in light of the order.

“I’m not aware of any Motion since I haven’t seen any,” said Mr Muturi after the address by visiting Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete.

“The way to impeach someone is through a Motion. The one being debated in the media and the purported orders I haven’t seen.”

Both the Senate and National Assembly have in the past defied court orders.

Mr Maanzo said because Parliament had started the process and the matter was “live”, it would be improper for the courts to attempt to stop it.

Mr Muturi said Parliament would not be stopped from doing its job by the Judiciary.
