We did our bit, says mover of flopped anti-Mu­tua bid

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Eastern -

Twenty-six Machakos MCAs who on Wed­nes­day un­suc­cess­fully voted for the re­moval of Gover­nor Al­fred Mu­tua have termed the process a a big score.

The mo­tion flopped af­ter 33 MCAs snubbed the de­bate, amidst re­ports that 32 of them were in Tan­za­nia. The mem­bers who took part in the de­bate dur­ing the day were 27, but one opted out at the last minute by sneak­ing out of the as­sem­bly dur­ing the vot­ing. The mo­tion re­quired 40 MCAs out of the 59. But speak­ing to jour­nal­ists af­ter the de­bate that lasted nine hours, the MCAs, led by mover of the mo­tion Stephen Muthuka, said they had done the right thing.

“We are happy that we have done our bit, it’s now for the pub­lic to de­cide if they want to re­elect Mu­tua and give him an­other chance to con­tinue mess­ing up their lives, well and good,” he said.

Ikombe MCA Nathaniel Nganga said they have scored big in telling the peo­ple of Machakos who Mu­tua is for those who do not know him. “That alone makes us grate­ful,” he said. Nganga said they will not leave the mat­ter at that level but will pro­ceed to hand over the whole dossier of their mo­tion to the EACC.
