SPEAKER SAYS RUNNING TO TRIBUNAL WAS WRONG
MCAs who signed the petition to remove Mwonga and Kilonzo said they will respect the tribunal’s decision, but warned it is “a move on the wrong foot”. Ikombe MCA and deputy speaker Nathaniel Nganga urged Cord to prevail on the tribunal because there is a feeling it is interfering with the assembly’s decision. “If Mwonga was dissatisfied with his removal, he should have first complained to the party so internal dispute resolution mechanisms can be applied. Going to the tribunal first was wrong,” he said. Kathinzi told the Star he is consulting his lawyers on the next move. “This was a party affair and it is clear the party has no faith in Mwonga as the majority leader. He cannot now start imposing himself on us, when it is very clear he is no longer needed,” he said.
