National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi has dared a section of Members of Parliament threatening to oust him saying they have no good understanding of the constitution.
Muturi, who was speaking at St. Marys Secondary School grounds in Ena, Embu East Sub-County said noted that there is a procedure in the Constitution on how to unseat the incumbent Speaker.
This comes after Speaker Muturi was recently coronated as the Mt. Kenya Spokesman a move that has received varying reactions from a section of Mt Kenya leaders led by Murang’s Governor Mwangi wa Iria and a section of Kikuyu elders.
On Friday, last week, the elders from Mt Kenya dismissed the crowning of National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi as Mt Kenya spokesman.
The elders conducted a cleansing ceremony of Mukurwe wa Nyagathanga shrine to nullify Muturi’s crowning saying that the ceremony was abused.
Muturi said the only option the Parliament has is to pass a vote of no confidence and not impeachment, adding that there are rules that are supposed to be followed and they are open.
He said he would stay put since he had spent more years in politics than the majority of lawmakers.
However, Muturi said he is not afraid of the move but rather promised to continue serving Mt Kenya region as its spokesperson.
The National Assembly speaker promised to transverse the whole region with an aim of uniting the people and the leaders so that they can speak in one voice and push the agenda of development.
During his coronation two weeks ago, Muturi promised to reach out to his fellow leaders in the region in order to collectively engage in a meaningful political and economic agenda for the interest of residents in the region.
