Nyandarua Speaker dismisses ouster claims

Nyandarua County Assembly Speaker Ndegwa Wahome yesterday dismissed his alleged ouster by some MCAs, saying he was still in office.

He said the alleged impeachment was an aberration because the Speaker cannot be impeached without a motion.

Wahome said following the chaotic scene at the Assembly on Tuesday, which derailed sittings, he has adjourned the House in accordance with Standing Order number 112 (3) to next Tuesday.

“This adjournment is expected to give room for interventions into the issues affecting the Assembly,” he said.

Wahome claimed he was aware some people don’t want peace in the Assembly to allow misappropriation of funds.

He said some documents on corruption in the Assembly had been filed with the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) and Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

On Tuesday, about 20 MCAs walked out of a meeting that was reportedly sanctioned by President Uhuru Kenyatta to end House infighting.  The MCAs proceeded to carry out a mock Speaker swearing-in at the Assembly.
