Hizi Ni Takataka- Drama As Speaker Muturi Throws Out Fatuma Gedi’s Corruption Evidence On Ruto

National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi on Tuesday ruled that the documents tabled by Wajir MP Fatuma Gedi on her land grabbing allegations against Deputy President William Ruto are inadmissible.

He said the lawmaker did not follow the laid down rules for submission of documents, further calling out the Woman Representative for attempting to discuss Ruto’s conduct through the backdoor.

Muturi directed the Clerk of the National Assembly Michael Sialai to withdraw the documents and return the same to Gedi at the earliest time possible.

“In this regard, I rule that the documents are inadmissible for failure to meet the threshold set by the rules of admissibility that I have highlighted. Consequently, I direct that the documents tabled by the Hon. Member during the Sitting of the House of April 14, 2022, be expunged from the records of the House forthwith.

“I also direct the Clerk to return the documents to the Hon. Member, at an appropriate time. To this end, this matter is spent in terms of Standing Order 91 and there shall be no further substantiation by the Hon. Member or debate on it,” Muturi stated.

A storm erupted in the National Assembly last month as Gedi made the allegations of land grabbing.

Gedi walked into the Chambers with a suitcase of evidence, to demonstrate assertions that Ruto was a land grabber.

During a debate on a petition over land issues at the Coast, linked Ruto to alleged land grabbing some of which she said had been ruled by courts in favour of the victims.

She was thus asked by Speaker Justin Muturi to table the evidence of her claims, which she attempted before the chaotic sittings were adjourned prematurely.

Meanwhile, Embakasi East MP Babu Owino will now be treated as a pariah at Parliament buildings in the next five days for disorderly conduct.

The MP will also miss five sittings.

National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi ordered Sergeants-at-Arms to bar the MP from accessing the chamber, committees, as well any other activity in Parliament.

“I direct the MP to withdraw from chamber and precincts for five days inclusive today pursuant to Standing Order 107,” Muturi said.

“If he is not in the chamber today, he will not be allowed to access precincts, chamber, committee, or any House activities.”

Babu was punished for refusing to heed orders to vacate the chamber on April 14 when Wajir Woman MP Fatuma Gedi sought to table documents on land grabbing allegations against DP William Ruto.
