Matiang’i impeachment attempt annoys supporters

Some political leaders have vowed to defend interior CS Fred Matiang’i against whom an impeachment attempt is being made.

Nakuru Town West MP Samuel Arama on Friday said the impeachment motion against the CS had no grounds and was headed nowhere.

“We have come together as Gusii MPs to strongly condenm the looming impeachment motion being fronted by legislators allied to DP William Ruto.

This attempt will hit a dead end,” Arama said on phone.

The MP further said, those behind the impeachment plans were merely trying to taint the name of the CS.

Arama noted that as Gusii leaders, they will not allow their kingpin to be disrespected by “a few misguided individuals.”

He noted that matters mentioned in the impeachment documents have no grounds since they were addressed by the courts.

“The leaders have come out with issues to do with Ruaraka land and killings within the National Police Service.

It should be clear that the Ruaraka land issue was addressed by the court long time ago,” Arama (pictured above) said.

He added that the CS is not in charge of the police.

“He is a policy maker in the ministry; the alleged crime within the22 police service should be addressed by the Inspector General of Police,” Arama said.

Nyali MP Mohammed Ali Mohammed on Thursday drafted the impeachment motion against Dr Matiang’i.

Reports indicate that 92 Mps had already appended their signatures.

Arama dismissed the move, saying it was not worth undertaking.

He urged MPs not to be used by greedy leaders who have selfish and narrow minded political interests.

“We should avoid some leaders who want to mislead us.

Some Tanga Tanga MPs are being used to bring up issues that cannot take us anywhere as a country,” he stated.

He added that the motion was dead on arrival.

“We are firmly behind our son. This impeachment has no ground. As a community, we need to come together and condemn this matter in the strongest terms possible,” Arama said.

Lawyer Stephen Mogaka, an aspirant for the West Mugirango Constituency parliamentary seat, also condemned actions of the area MP Vincent Kemosi for reportedly being the only Gusii MP who had signed the impeachment papers.

Mogaka termed the actions as a shame to the people of West Mugirango and Gusii Community as a whole.

Mogaka wondered why the MP was busy appending signatures to impeach a civil servant with proven track record when his constituents were suffering under his watch.

“The MP is attempting to kill the career of the CS when he has neglected the people who gave him the mandate to serve them.

This is a let down to the Gusii Community,” he added.
