Azimio threatens to paralyze Parliament business if Sabina Chege not removed from deputy whip seat

Azimio MPs vow to paralyze parliament business next week if changes to remove Deputy Minority Whip Sabina Chege are not effected.

The opposition MPs led by Minority leader Opiyo Wandayi have hit out at the Speaker of the National Assembly Moses Wetangula for frustrating the Minority side in the parliament.

Azimio lawmakers accused Speaker Wetangula of taking them in circles and refusing to communicate the changes five months after the Azimio coalition made the decision.

“If the court order issued on October 19 is not effected by the Speaker and Mwenje is allowed to carry out his duty then there will be no business in the House of Parliament on Thursday when the House resumes sittings,” said Wandayi in a press conference at Parliament buildings.

He added: “This has to stop in one way or the other. We are being taken around in circles. Meanwhile, those who went to court on this matter are now running around to seek further orders to stop the change. You don’t have to be a lawyer to know what games are being played.”

Wandayi bemoaned the fact that the minority is currently unable to conduct business effectively because Sabina Chege is not not working them and claims to be at the office taking pay for tasks that she does not perform.

Mark Mwenje, the MP for Embakasi West, was scheduled to take the position after a Kiambu court dismissed a case that had been filed to challenge Sabina’s removal.

The minority has been furious with the Speaker for his unwillingness to make the necessary adjustments on Azimio leadership in parliament.
