Azimio to challenge Wetangula’s majority ruling in court


The Azimio la Umoja coalition led by the wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has declared it will seek judicial redress concerning the declaration of Kenya kwanza as the majority party in the house claiming the ruling was manipulated to favor the Kenya kwanza Coalition .

The speaker declared Kenya kwanza as the majority in the house with 179 members against Azimio who had 165 members the wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has contested with the decision made by Moses Wetangula claiming he reached upon it with disregard to the law and the constitution of Kenya and favored the side that put him at the legislative arm of the government.

The speaker gave his reasoning that led to his decision so that Azimio to go down from 179 to 165 as 14 members from UDM, PAA, MDG and Maendeleo CHAPCHAP decamped the coalition.

“In my considered opinion it will be imprudent in place of the 14 members elected under UDM,PAA, MDG and Maendeleo CHAPCHAP as part of a coalition that expressively distanced itself from and their parties and am therefore persuaded that the 14 members are part of the Kenya Kwanza Coalition” said Wetangula.

But this has been rubbished off by the Azimio coalition stating that it is against the coalition agreement as it prohibited constituent parties from hoping 6 months to elections and 3 months after elections. Kimani ichungwa was declared the majority leader deputized by Kilifi North MP Owen Baya and on the otherside the Ugunja MP Opiyo Wandayi was appointed as the minority leader deputized by Kathiana MP Robert Mbui.

The wiper leader has called upon the Azimio members of parliament to reject president william Ruto’s cabinet nominees with integrity question.

“And those committes of parliament i want to talk to them now this candidates will come with big envelopes to bribe you if you accept any of them heaven will take after your case” said Kalonzo Musyoka.

Kalonzo has also raised concerns over the murder case of Aisha Jumwa and Kiunjuri saying that they should be in jail but due to bribe they are given appointments stating it was a way for the president to wash his hands from the matter and leave it for the committee to decide.
