The National Assembly has distanced itself from a document that has been viral and which is believed to bear the crucial information as regards William Ruto’s impeachment.
The document specified June 2 as the date when Ruto’s impeachment would be tabled before speaker Justin Muturi and thereafter be open for debate by members of the house.
The National Assembly now says it doesn’t have anything to do with the document the house clerk saying it is fake.
“The attention of the Clerk of the National Assembly has been drawn to a fictitious document circulating on social media purporting to be an Order Paper for the Assembly for the business to be transacted on Tuesday, June 2, 2020,” Michael Sialai (N. A clerk) said in a statement.
Mr. Sialai said, in any case, the Order Paper on any business in the house is normally published on the parliamentary website and that normally follows the approval of the House Business Committee.
Sialai also was clear on there being no member of parliament who reached out with signatures endorsing DP Ruto’s removal from his office saying the fake document is aimed at misleading MPs and members of the public and thus should be treated with the utmost contempt.
This comes hours after Hon. Kanini Kega of Kieni refuted claims that he is the one behind the motion to oust William Ruto.
Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria had claimed the Kieni MP was the one bestowed with the responsibility of presenting the ouster debate before it gets seconded by MPs from the Wiper Party and others.
Hon. Kanini Kega in a presser said they currently are focusing on helping the President to deliver on the country’s big four agenda, adding Ruto’s removal from office ain’t part of their focus now.
The ouster is said to have been based on Ruto’s gross violation of the Constitution, abdicating his duties as the President’s deputy especially by his failure to attend the National Security Council meetings as required by law, among other alleged violations of the provisions governing his office.
