In the ruling on Thursday, Speaker Muturi added that Nyoro’s suspension days was exclusive of the recess period from May 14 to June 7.
Muturi proposed a motion before the House, inviting the legislators to debate in favour of or against the suspension of Nyoro.
Minority whip Emmanuel Wangwe proposed the motion, which was seconded by Deputy Majority Whip Maoka Maore.
During the motion, Nyoro and his counterpart Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria were called upon to provide evidence of bribery claims made during BBI Bill voting on May 6. Speaking to the BBC this morning, Kuria claimed that MPs’ palms were greased to a tune of KSh100,000 per person to vote in favour of the Bill.
“I called them not only sellouts and cowards, but also intimidated, and now I call them sycophants who betrayed Kenyans,” Nyoro said about his colleagues who voted for the Bill.
Kuria relieved off bribery claims charges
Kuria dramatically rose with a wad of cash in his hand but was denied an opportunity to speak.
Speaker Muturi cleared him of all charges on the bribery claims, saying that the remarks were not made in parliament. “Kuria is free to make whatever remarks he wants, and since I haven’t heard them here, there are no further proceedings against Mr. Kuria.”
He further said that Kuria would do with the money as he pleased, “including donating it to a charity in Kamukunji.”
The National Assembly shall go into recess from May 14 to June 7. Nyoro’s suspension takes immediate effect.
