Speaker on mission to unite the house after his impeachment failed

Nakuru County assembly speaker Eng.Joel Maina Kairo who on Wednesday survived impeachment motion against him now says he is on a mission to unite the divided house.

The motion was brought to the house by Biashara ward MCA Peter Njoroge Nyaguthii but failed to achieve the 75% support threshold after 45 MCAs voted in support of the motion while 32 MCAs voted against the motion.

The motion required the support of 59 MCAs in order to sail through.

Speaker Kairo now says the big task ahead is to unite the divided house as was witnessed during the voting.

He says he will soon convene a Speaker’s Kamkunji on the same.

“We will have a Kamkunji to iron out issues as far as division in the house is concerned” said Kairo.

The speaker said he was happy that the assembly has shown the whole country that the issues brought against him were framed adding that he is ready to continue serving as the second speaker of Nakuru county assembly.

Before his election as Nakuru’s second speaker, Kairo served as the CEC for roads in Kinuthia Mbugua’s administration.
