Senators upfront to have CS Moses Kuria impeached

The National Assembly Majority Leader, Kimani Ichung’wah, has been unanimously instructed by the Senate’s Majority and Minority sides to present a motion of impeachment against Public Service CS Moses Kuria.

Senators expressed their displeasure over Kuria’s alleged attempt to sabotage Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza’s impeachment proceedings.

Earlier, CS Kuria had named 13 senators, both opposition and government, saying they were being duped to guarantee Mwangaza’s demise.

According to the senator, CS Kuria’s actions have seriously called into question the President’s ability to select.

Other senators responded by cautioning that Kuria should be sent home because of his dubious behavior, which they claimed was damaging the president’s reputation.

“Moses Kuria is an incorrigible national shame. How much embarrassment does the president have to endure? If nothing is done about Moses Kuria, there is more embarrassment coming,” Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna lamented.¬†

Additionally, Senator Otieno Kajwang of Homa Bay urged senators who support the president to counsel him regarding Kuria’s behavior.

Senator Samson Cherargei of Nandi, however, pleaded with the President to keep up the pressure on Transport Chief Kipchumba Murkomen. The Senator has been at odds with the CS, alleging that the latter has excluded his county from development-related decisions.

Murkomen had already charged the senator with being a tribalist for supposedly asking the government to give contracts to contractors in the local community.

Senators were instructed by Senate Speaker Amason Kingi to submit a motion that would be sent to the National Assembly in order to start the process of ousting Moses Kuria.

On the first day of the hearing for Governor Kawira Mwangaza, Kingi had forewarned CS Kuria on his comments regarding senate proceedings.

Moses Kuria impeachment process

Although the President of Kenya is empowered to appoint CSs under Article 152 of the Kenyan Constitution, the process of impeachment is lengthy and starts with a resolution of censure from the National Assembly, as stipulated in Clause 6 of the Article.

Two-thirds of the house members must vote in favor of the resolution, which addresses flagrant misconduct, crimes against national or international law, and flagrant violations of the Constitution.

Before a decision is made, an 11-member committee is appointed to look into the claims brought against the CS.
