BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,21ST MARCH 2018-Health Cabinet Secretary Sicily Kariuki is under siege as the National Assembly begin the process of her removal over misconduct and abuse of office.
This has been revealed as parliament prepares itself to discuss a special motion seeking her removal from office starting Tuesday next week.
Mandera North MP Bashir Abdullahi, who is behind the latest petition which he said is now with the clerk of the House, said that the process to compel President Uhuru Kenyatta to fire Ms Kariuki is complete.
The MP cites gross misconduct and abuse of office as the grounds for the removal of Ms Kariuki, noting that already, 170 MPs have expressed their lack of confidence in her leadership.
“Concerned that this Cabinet Secretary is arrogant and lacks respect for elected leaders, this House resolves that pursuant to article 152 (6) of the Constitution, recommends the president to dismiss Ms Kariuki for gross misconduct and abuse of office,” reads the motion.
“She has used her office to deny other qualified Kenyans the chance to be the CEO of the hospital by ordering the board to re-submit another list,” Mr Abdullahi said in the motion.
If approved, it will be the first time such a motion is discussed in Parliament in the life of the Jubilee administration since 2013 when it came to power.
