Embu MCAs oust Majority Leader
Embu MCAs have removed Majority Leader Andrew Musakwa, accusing him of poor leadership and mismanagement of county resources.
Kyeni North MCA and Deputy Majority Leader Kanjogu Mugo issued a statement on behalf of the MCAs accusing Musakwa of opposing all county government proposals.
They further accused Musakwa of instigating tribal and political rifts that they said have bedeviled the Assembly since they took office in 2013.
The MCAs selected Mbeti South MCA, Muria Nyaki, as his replacement, carrying him shoulder-high to the Majority leader’s office.
In an appreciation speech, Nyaki said his leadership will be devoid of intimidation, malice and discrimination as witnessed in Musakwa’s.
Majority chief whip Linus Muchina said the office of the Speaker and The National Alliance (TNA) party leadership had been notified of the new changes.
The MCAs said they will impeach Speaker Kariuki Mate and Deputy Ibrahim Swaleh if they oppose the move.
They asked MPs to respect the decision which they said is aimed at streamlining operations, improving output and uniting them.
“Executive committee members and chief officers who fail to deliver will be sacked,” they said.
However, the bid to eject Musakwa from office has attracted divergent views from close ally to the majority leader, Mate one of the MCAs said was not procedural and legally executed.
“I will study the documents to ascertain that they meet the threshold. The removal can only take effect after the Assembly resumes its sittings on February 9,” he said.
