Moses Kuria:Speaker Muturi Bribed With Tilapia to Support Referendum Push
The push and pull between political factions pushing for a referendum and those against it on the implementation of the BBI report escalated into possible friction between Members of Parliament and the National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi.
Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria lashed at Speaker Muturi for declaring his support for a referendum instead of a parliamentary process to implement the proposals in the report.
Kuria issued a threat of starting a process of impeaching Mr Muturi. He posted on his social media page on Monday stating that if it was Justice Maraga pronouncing himself in a public baraza on how he will rule on a matter before court, there would be no devils in hell.
They would all be in Kenya.Kuria added that why would Justin Muturi allow himself to be bribed with a tilapia meal by John Mbadi in Migori to rule out a parliamentary route for BBI is a mystery for him and today he will start collecting signatures to impeach him.
Speaker Muturi, while addressing residents of Uriri Constituency on Sunday ruled out a possibility of settling on a parliamentary process to implement the report citing lack of proper mechanism to table the report.
The Speaker had accompanied some MPs to Uriri for a fundraiser. Among those who attended the event included Minority Leader of the National Assembly John Mbadi, Migori Senator Ochillo Ayacko, Senator Okong’o Omogeni, Mark Nyamita (Uriri), Tim Wanyonyi (Westlands), and Maisori Kitayama (Kuria East).
The journey to implement the Building Bridges Initiative report has split politicians into two groups.
A section of Jubilee leaders, Kieleweke, and ODM leaders have come out in support of the referendum arguing that the people must be involved in the implementation of the report.
