“Do it if you’ve got guts”- Muturi Dares MPs To Remove Him As Speaker.

The National Assembly Speaker, Justin Muturi has dared MPs to remove him as the speaker after his coronation as the Kikuyu community’s spokesman.

Muturi’s coronation has brought about a heated debate over its legitimacy with some legislators demanding for his immediate resignation.

“There is no impeachment of the speaker. The only option is for the Parliament to pass a vote of no confidence. We have the rules that are supposed to be followed and they are open. Whoever will hit the threshold should try,” Muturi stated.

“Some of us have been in this business for many years and some people who served for two terms are claiming that they want to impeach me. I have not heard anyone saying that,” he added.

Notably, a section of the Kikuyu Council of Elders, Muturi’s coronation was not legit and on June 4 they in company of Murang’a Governor, Mwangi Wa Mwangi Wa Iria held a cleansing ceremony at the Mukurwe Wa Nyagathanga shrines where they revoked Muturi’s coronation.

According to the Constitution, the speaker is considered an ex-officio member of the House and the seat can only be declared vacant if the holder vacates after he is declared of unsound mind, bankrupt, misses eight consecutive sittings without proper explanation or is imprisoned for at least six months.
