6 Reasons why it is impossible to impeach DP William Ruto

Majority Leader in the National Assembly and Member of Parliament for Garissa Township Hon. Aden Duale has rubbished Senator James Orengo’s advances at oustering Deputy President Dr. William Samoei Ruto through an impeachment motion.

‘The Hon. Senator Orengo, being a Senior Counsel is either in some legal slumber or is knowingly misleading the public,’

said Duale.

He added that Orengo has failed to understand six important aspects of any impeachment process of the Deputy President or the President: –

1. The process cannot start in the Senate where he sits! Under Article 145 of the Constitution as read together with Art.150, the process can only originate in the National Assembly, where he does not sit!.

2. Under the same Article, The process can ONLY be initiated by a sitting Member of Parliament. The Constitution has no room for the strangers he is imagining he can sponsor to initiate the process.

3. Any MP wishing to start the process MUST have signatures of not less than a third of the entire membership of the National Assembly. In a House of 349, that translates to 117 MPs! That would be an uphill task for anyone- The idea will die even before it starts.

4. For such a motion to pass the second stage, it will require to be supported by two-thirds of all Members of the National Assembly. Getting 233 MPs to support anything is a political nightmare! It has been tried unsuccessfully more than 5 times in Bills to amend the Constitution.

5. Supposing that it passes that stage and the trial committee of eleven is formed. This is the Third Stage, where the Senate now becomes involved.

6. If the Committee was to find the grounds substantiated, the final stage is even harder- it requires two thirds of Senators to support! Third Stage is even harder! The motion will also require support of another Two-thirds of all Senators.

‘In a House where Jubilee party enjoys super majority, that is definitely insurmountable. Our Constitution protects all Kenyans from cheap witch-hunt. My friend Senator Orengo knows this too well, but he has chosen, once more, to market cheap and worthless fishing expeditions. He will not distract us from uniting our nation and the BIG 4 agenda!’

concludes Duale.
