Friday June 12, 2020 – National Assembly Minority Whip, Junet Mohamed, has rallied ODM MPs not to support the impeachment motion against President Uhuru Kenyatta’s CS, James Macharia, who has been accused of overseeing mega corruption scandals in Uhuru’s administration.
The motion to impeach Macharia has been drafted by Nyali MP, Mohammed Ali.
He accuses CS Macharia of overseeing stalled projects worth Ksh100 billion, terming it as a gross violation of Article 73 of the Constitution on Leadership and Integrity.
The MP also accused Macharia of overseeing the loss of Ksh1.5 billion in the housing project scandal and the Sh5.2 billion Afya House scandal.
The Nyali MP, in his impeachment motion, further accused Macharia of committing perjury by lying under oath.
In a text message sent to all ODM MPs, Junet, who is also former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s right hand man, tells legislators never to embarrass President Uhuru Kenyatta by participating in the impeachment process of his CS.
“Kindly note that the party does not support this purported motion and members are urged to desist from appending signatures on the said motion,” a text message sent to ODM MPs read.
