In Summary
  • Mr Muturi directed Mr Wandayi to move the motion for the adoption of the report in an appropriately amended form.
  • The committee wanted Mr Chebukati and his two commissioners to leave office following their indictment over the loss of money in last year's polls.

National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi wants the Public Accounts Committee's recommendation calling for the removal of electoral agency commissioners over last year's election blunders expunged from its report.

Mr Muturi on Thursday ruled that the recommendation by the Opiyo Wandayi-led committee is offensive, thus inadmissible for debate.

He directed Mr Wandayi to move the motion for the adoption of the report in an appropriately amended form.

"May I clarify that expunging the offensive parts of the report is not to mean that the entire report is discredited. As a matter of fact, the rest of the report is admissible and will proceed for consideration by the House upon rescheduling by the House Business Committee," he said.

MONEY LOSS

And added: "The committee has duly executed its mandate satisfactorily and carried out a commendable task of taking evidence and compiling their report to the House. That is an accomplishment worthy of credit."
