Be realistic on Rotich impeachment; Khalwale tells off MPs

Be realistic about Rotich impeachment, Khalwale tells MPs

The Deputy Leader of Ford Kenya said this during an interview on NTV where he added that the MPs should stop generating more heat than light on impeaching CS Rotich urging them to instead focus on who was behind the tax levy.

“The time to impeach Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich was when he mismanaged the sugar importation problems, but on this one, it is bigger than Rotich. President is the one who should be impeached” said Khalwale.

His sentiments were echoed by Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot who said that the MPs were not genuine with the impeachment motion of Treasury CS.

“This idea of impeaching Rotich, people are not being genuine in their concerns. Because this is the only budget we did not have a parliamentary group meeting before passing it compared to previous ones when we could go through them,” Cheruiyot added.

16% Fuel Tax

This comes after a heated debate among Kenyans following implementation of the 16 per cent Value Added Tax on petroleum products, a move that has seen matatu owners hike transport charges.

A section of Orange Democratic Movement(ODM) party MPs on September 2, put Rotich on a 72-hour notice to scrap the new fuel levy. They were led by Mathare MP Anthony Oluoch who threatened to impeach Rotich would he fail to rescind the new fuel levy.

“We are invoking our sovereignty now under article 1 of the constitution saying that if you do not withdraw this directive, we will mobilize people, demonstrate and will institute proceedings for your removal,” stated Oluoch
