SPEAKER SAYS RUN­NING TO TRI­BUNAL WAS WRONG

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Eastern -

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.
