Controversial Gatundu member of parliament Moses Kuria is in big trouble following his bribery allegations directed at his fellow members of parliament.
According to the Star, three MPs have been ordered to report to the National Assembly chambers on Thursday to answer allegations of disorderly conduct.
Moses Kuria, his Nyali counterpart Mohamed Ali and Kiharu legislator Ndindi Nyoro face charges of issuing disparaging remarks against their colleagues who voted for the Constitution of Kenya Amendment Bill, 2020.
Speaker Justin Muturi made this decision in the backdrop of pressure from members of the house who demanded that he calls out these MPs following their disorderly behavior.
“Members of this House are all honourable members. They have been elected by Kenyans and have a chance to say Yes or NO. It was very wrong that the member was saying the 235 members who voted Yes could only do that after being given Sh100,000.” Posed Kitui Central MP Makali Mulu.
“This is very wrong coming from an honorable member. There is a casual way of doing things in this House which is not good. Some members called others sell-outs, cowards, and traitors.” Added Makali Mulu.
“How can a member in this House call another member a coward, sell-outs? We need your (speaker’s) intervention so that we remain honourable members,” reiterated the mp.
On his side, majority leader Amos Kimunya stated that those sentiments were unfortunate since they brought the National Assembly disrepute not only locally but also in the international arena. As a result, he urged the speaker to initiate a serious action against Moses Kuria and his team.
“It is horrible to insinuate that for MPs to vote in a sudden direction, they do for inducements from a certain leader of the House. We need to take serious action. Kuria should be named. And all those in his coattails should follow as they exit the house,” Kimunya said.
“These people require to be disciplined so that we have some decorum in this House. This loose talk for cheap political mileage ought to be stopped,” added the House leader.
