Muturi to rule on Aisha Jumwa’s fate in PSC


National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi is set to make a ruling on whether Nasa can recall Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa as their representative to the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC).

This is after Rarieda MP Otiende Amolo raised a procedural question on how to remove a member of the influential Commission.

“The Nasa coalition met and reached unanimous decision to effect certain changes to the composition of Parliamentary Service Commission. I seek your guidance before we take action to avoid acting in vain and unnecessary varied interpretation of relevant provisions.”

Jumwa is among the nine MPs that Nasa resolved to dewhip during their May 28, 2020 parliamentary group meeting at Parliament main chambers.

The Raila Odinga led Coalition had also announced plans to start the process of recalling Jumwa from PSC. Nasa is fronting Mishi Mboko (Likoni) to replace Jumwa.

They were accused of amongst other things not pledging allegiance to the Nasa coalition.

Others removed from committees for a period of six months include; Chris Wamalwa (Kiminini), Silvanus Osoro (South Mugirango, KNC), Nakara Lodepe (Turkana Central), Catherine Wambilianga (Bungoma Woman Rep), Vincent Kemosi (West Mugirango, Ford Kenya), David Ochieng (MDG), Bady Twalib (Jomvu, ODM) and Tindi Mwale (Butere)Muturi said he will give direction on the matter soon.

Muturi promised to issue a communication over the issue but noted that every MP has right to sit in at least a committee.

“Every member is entitled to serve in a committee that is a fact whether the members is an Independent candidate or belong to a political party, it is how they get into those committees – that we will need to determine,” Muturi said.
