0

Members of the National Assembly are set to debate a special motion for the removal of Mithika Linturi as the Cabinet Secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock Development during a special sitting to be held on the morning of Thursday, 2nd of April 2024.

This follows the approval of a notice of motion moved by Jack Wamboka MP Bumula tabled before the House.

Wamboka alleges that the CS submitted false information to the Parliamentary committee investigating the controversial matter that saw farmers in the country receive soil conditioner disguised as fertilizer.

“Honourable Members, I find that the proposed Motion by the Member for Bumula, meets the requirements of Article 152(6) of the Constitution and Standing Order 66 forming the threshold required for a Member to move a motion for the dismissal of a Cabinet Secretary,” read Speaker Wetang’ula.

He went on to add, “In view of the foregoing, I find that the proposed special Motion meets the applicable procedural requirements for it to be admitted to the next stage. In this regard, I note that Standing Order 47(4A), provides that a Member shall give Notice of Motion in the House within three sitting days following approval by the Speaker”.
