The push to impeach CS Anne Waiguru is a calculated move by Ruto to force President Uhuru Kenyatta to reinstate suspended Cabinet Secretaries who are affiliated to URP.
Firebrand Nandi MP Alfred Keter, who is pushing for the removal of the CS, has already garnered 95 signatures ready for Tuesday showdown, when he is expected to move the motion to impeach the CS. Ms Waiguru is accused of overseeing the loss of over sh700 million from her powerful docket.
This will not be the first time the Devolution CS will be facing the wrath of MPs. It’s also a coincidence that the first MP who wanted her removed was from a Jubilee affiliated party just like Keter. Then, Igembe South MP Mr Linturi accused the CS of being arrogant and disrespectful to MPs. He seemed charged to go all the way but buckled out the last minute when he was supposed to move. Linturi was a no-show effectively killing the motion.
Mr Keter has however stated the he wont stop at nothing. Nothing to some means until suspended CS Felix Koskei (Agriculture) and Energy CS Davis Chirchir, who have since been cleared over graft claims by EACC, are reinstated.
It is expected if the abovenamed CSs are reinstated by the President, Keter will pull a Linturi and kill the motion. It’s worth mentioning no MP from RV has come out to defend Waiguru except sharp tongued Aden Duale.
