Cord, Ju­bilee ward reps have be­trayed me, says MCA Nyang’wara on Kidero re­moval mo­tion

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

The MCA spon­sor­ing the mo­tion to im­peach Nairobi Gover­nor Evans Kidero says he has been be­trayed by Cord and Ju­bilee ward rep­re­sen­ta­tives who abruptly ran away.

Sa­muel Nyang’wara (Vi­wan­dani) cited the de­ci­sion by Cord MCAs to boy­cott the sit­ting on Tues­day and some Ju­bilee MCAs’ ef­forts to with­draw their sig­na­tures from the sacking pe­ti­tion.“Some mem­bers now sup­port­ing the gover­nor have been with me all along and pledged to sup­port the mo­tion,” he said. But with­out a quo­rum, de­bate can­not take place.

Nyang’wara com­mented af­ter speaker Alex Magelo suspended de­bate on the mo­tion on Wed­nes­day. This was af­ter the em­bat­tled city boss ob­tained a court or­der on Mon­day, bar­ring the as­sem­bly from sum­mon­ing him and de­bat­ing the mo­tion.

Magelo said the as­sem­bly will try to quash the or­der. Nyang’wara crit­i­cised the judiciary for in­ter­fer­ing with the as­sem­bly. “I as­sure you even if I re­main alone, it must be de­bated,” he said.
