The National Assembly has disowned a fake document about the impeachment of Deputy President William.
The forged order paper circulated on social media listed a special motion for the impeachment of DP Ruto on grounds of gross violation of the constitution and gross misconduct.
The document claimed the motion was the only House business on Thursday, June 2nd when parliament will resume after recess.
In a statement on Monday, May 5th, National Assembly Clerk Michael Sialai said the document is fictitious and meant to mislead MPs and members of the public. He said no such motion has been filed at his office or that of the Speaker of the National Assembly.
“No list of Members or signatures in support of such a motion has been received in either of the two offices,” Sialai stated.
“The document refers to Sixth Session whereas it is common knowledge that out Parliament is currently in its Fourth Session; the formatting of the document in terms of nomenclature, spacing, punctuation, and numbering shows that the fictitious document is a creation of people bent on circulating fake news,” he added.
Kieni MP Kanini Kega who was alleged to have sponsored the motion distanced himself from the document and blamed it on DP Ruto allies.
“This is a scheme to try and whip up public emotions, to try and gain sympathy and I don’t know where they are heading to. For me I want to say in no uncertain terms, that we have no motion to impeach the DP. We have no intention because that is not part of our agenda,” Kanini stated.
