Speaker kicks out Mbadi over remarks

National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi yesterday threw out Leader of Minority John Mbadi after he refused to withdraw a remark that there was no president in Kenya.

A defiant Mbadi reject pleas to withdraw the remark, even after he was warned of the consequences by the Speaker. The Suba South MP now becomes the first legislator to be thrown out of the Chamber for lack of decorum.

Procedural motion Mbadi was contributing to a procedural motion moved by the Leader of Majority Aden Duale seeking to give the Speaker the latitude to commit any appointment made by the President before the relevant committee without having to summon MPs.

“The President is the appointing authority for such positions, in Kenya we don’t have one so such matters like appointment of Cabinet do not exist,” Mbadi said much to the chagrin of the Jubilee MPs. “There are statements that may be juicy to make out there to create some excitement but I will not allow them in this House,” Muturi told Mbadi.
