Trouble brewing: Why Justin Muturi Could Lose His Seat as Speaker

The legitimacy of National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi has been disputed by one his challengers who claimed he was not duly elected on August 31.

Dr Noah Migudo Winja petitioned Parliament claiming that the Speaker failed to meet the nomination requirements and the House was not properly constituted during the election.

Dr Winja wrote to the Clerk of the National Assembly Mr Michael Sialai pursuing Muturi’s immediate resignation, claiming he was wrongly cleared by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

The letter, dated October 16, has also been copied to Muturi, IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati, National Assembly leader of Majority Aden Duale and ODM chairman John Mbadi.
