Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka is under fire as section of senators now turn the heat on him claiming he is the major stumbling block in their quest to find the lasting revenue sharing formula.
This is happening after the Senate proceeded on a one month recess amove that has even triggered the Senate protests against their speaker Ken Lusaka accusing him of being the problem.
Now, a section of the legislators christened Tean Kenya are calling for an immediate ouster of Lusaka threatening to kick off the process of sending him home.
The Senators further argue that the speaker’s performance is wanting as well as being used by outsiders to frustrate their quest for revenue sharing.
‘’He doesn’t know his job anymore and it’s actually a shame, because yesterday we could have finished all this, this thing of musical chairs is something which is shameful for this country, and I think its about time this people who are pushing the speaker cannot win, we have defeated them three times and Kenyans know” said Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina.
On his part, vocal Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo said he is not part of those pushing to impeach Lusaka since that would derail strides made in trying to reach a consensus as his Nandi counterpart supported the statement.
“Those lamenting about the speaker sit with him at the house business committee, why can’t they start the conversation there, Mutula sits in the committee so does Ole Kina,” posed Cherargei.
Council of Governors CoG led by Wycliffe Oparanya has asked the Senate to allow the old formula to inform the distribution of resources awaiting a solution later.
He was saddened that for a record 8th time, the senators had failed to agree on anything saying this was hurting the counties especially development projects.
