CORD MCAS SAID TO BE ‘POCK­ETED’

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics General -

Last month, Kakamega Se­na­tor Boni Khal­wale said MCAs in Cord zones seem to have been com­pro­mised by their gover­nors. Khal­wale said most of the im­peach­ment mo­tions the Sen­ate has re­ceived in the last three years were against Ju­bilee gover­nors. “It means MCAs in Ju­bilee ar­eas seem to have un­der­stood their role of over­sight more than their Cord coun­ter­parts,” he said. But Mom­basa’s Has­san Omar said lead­ers can be im­peached at any point dur­ing their terms, re­gard­less of the time at which is­sues were raised against them. He said there were con­sti­tu­tional is­sues con­cern­ing the ju­di­ciary in the over­sight roles of the as­sem­blies.
