Three legislators allied to deputy president William Ruto have been summoned to appear before the National Assembly chambers over their statements on the BBI bill supporters.
Nyali MP Mohammed Ali, Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, and their Kiharu counterpart, Ndindi Nyoro will face the house to answer to allegations of disorderly conduct.
The legislators will, who are huge supporters of Ruto face charges after issuing negative remarks against their colleagues who voted for the Constitution of Kenya Amendment Bill, 2020.
Parliament Speaker Justin Muturi issued the summon after Kitui Central MP Makali Mulu raised the matter, saying the 3 were disorderly and disrespectful to other members.
“How can a member in this House call another member a coward, sell-outs? We need your intervention so that we remain honourable members,” Mulu told the speaker on Tuesday.
“This is very wrong coming from an honorable member. There is a casual way of doing things in this House which is not good. Some members called others sell-outs, cowards, and traitors,” he added.
After the passing of the BBI bill, Moses Kuria alleged that the MPs who voted yes had been given money to influence their decisions.
Nyoro echoed his sentiments, calling his fellow legislators sell-outs.
“Members of this House are all honourable members. They have been elected by Kenyans and have a chance to say Yes or NO. It was very wrong that the member was saying the 235 members who voted Yes could only do that after being given Ksh 100,000,” Moses Kuria wrote on his Facebook page.
On his part, the Nyali MP took to his twitter page to accuse his colleagues who passed the bill as sycophants and selfish politicians.
“This is what I call Sins of Politics without principles. Sycophants, sell out and very selfish men and women who don’t care about the citizens of this country. We have Covid-19 pandemic and the economy is bad but just for kSh 100,000 you have decided to sell your country to an individual,” wrote Mohammed Ali.
