Earlier this week, Nyali MP Mohamed Ali tabled a motion to remove the corrupt Transport Cabinet Secretary James Macharia.
The first time MP stated that 90 lawmakers, of the required 87 had appended their signatures in support of the impeachment motion.
Ali has accused Macharia of gross misconduct:
‘Today I can confirm that I have tabled my petition to impeach CS James Macharia with 90 supporting signatures which is more than the threshold. My petition against him is for: 1. Gross violation of Article 10(1)(c) and 2(a) of the Constitution; Gross misconduct contrary to the provisions of Article 125 of the Constitution; Gross violation of Article 73 of the Constitution on Leadership and Integrity by: 9a) Overseeing stalled projects worth 100 billion (b) Overseeing loss of 1.5 billion Housing Project scandal (c) Overseeing of 5.2 billion Afya House Scandal”
However, come Thursday, 30 lawmakers have now distanced themselves from the motion, denying Kenyans justice.
Led by Kiharu lawmaker Ndindi Nyoro, the MPs said the purported signatures were obtained through deceit.
Another lawmaker, Paul Murigi said Mohammed tricked him that his signature was to help Ali obtain a loan from Parliament Sacco. “The MP told me the signatures were to help him obtain a loan,” he said.
They have now written to the Speaker Justin Muturi to withdraw their signatures.
