Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has criticized politicians who are pushing for the impeachment of Interior CS Moses Kuria.
In a Facebook post, the lawmaker said that it was time to focus on important things as the electioneering period nears while calling the impeachment motion as unnecessary distractions.
“It is not time for unnecessary distractions like the energy sapping and bound-to-fail motion of impeachment against CS Fred Matiangi,” Kuria said.
According to Kuria such issues would have made more sense a year ago than today.
The lawmaker said that the country should focus on more important things like registering 7 Million new voters.
“9 months and 28 days before polling stations open in the 2022 General Elections, it is time to focus on the most important things including registering 7 Million new voters, ensuring IEBC readiness to carry out a free, fair, credible, transparent and verifiable poll, ensuring maximum peace and security of all Kenyans and their property during the transitional General Elections and safeguarding our 2022-2023 budget cycle from the vagaries of a tense political transition.”
“Let’s focus. There is hardly any time left,” Kuria stated.
The proposal to impeach Matiang’i was presented by Nyali Member of Parliament Mohamed Ali.
Ali wants CS Matiang’ impeached on grounds that he has failed to respect court orders, abuse of office, disrespecting Members of Parliament, and lastly Interior Ministry’s failure to protect Kenyans as speculated in the Constitution.
The motion has caused a sharp division among Deputy Pesident William Ruto’s allies with South Mugirango MP, Sylvanus Osoro saying that his signature was forged.
“I have gone through the impeachment grounds fronted by Hon. Mohammed this morning and I must say I am disappointed. Why would one want to impeach the CS over his dispute with his governor over some wall?” Osoro said in the past.
