Thursday June 18, 2020 – Nyali MP, Mohammed Ali’s bid to impeach Transport CS James Macharia ran into headwinds after a section of MPs who purportedly signed his petition disowned the ouster.
At least 30 MPs accused the first-time lawmaker of being malicious.
Led by Kiharu lawmaker, Ndindi Nyoro, the MPs said the purported signatures were obtained through deceit.
Paul Murigi said Mohammed tricked him that his signature was to help Ali obtain a loan from Parliament Sacco.
“The MP told me the signatures were to help him obtain a loan,” he said.
“I have written to the Speaker withdrawing my signature.”
Ali had submitted a censure motion to the Office of the Speaker with 90 signatures seeking the removal of Macharia.
The Nyali MP wants to remove Transport CS James Macharia from office over his order to use the SGR to transport cargo from Mombasa to Naivasha’s ICD among other allegations of corruption.
