According to Speaker David Kombo last week, two individuals were invited to Kisii Sports Club to do an interview for the Assembly Speaker’s job which was not advertised anywhere, maintaining he was elected to take over a slot reserved for South Mugirango constituency after the seats were shared by Orange Democratic Movement ( ODM) after Governor James Ongwae was elected.
Mr Kombo who addressed the Press on Wednesday ,said the MCAs had attempted to remove him twice but never reached a threshold and urged them to try next time to attain the required two thirds to impeach him.
Early in the Morning it forced security officers to break the chains which was used to lock gates to the speaker and Governor’s officers after it was chained by unknown individuals .
The Speaker said the House has enormous work on oversight and representation and told whoever is trying to paralyze the Assembly to stop and allow him and the MCAs to work.
He said some Members of the Assembly were sent to him to resign so that he can be replaced, stressing he will not resign despite a section of MCAs trying to block him from entering the Chambers to work.
The Speaker who was brought to the Assembly amid tight security headed to his office as MCAs against him sang circumcision and Christian songs as security officers kept vigil and watched in disbelief.
Earlier, the Speaker’s effort to enter the Chambers with orderlies and the Mace was thwarted after MCAs opposed to him over his impeachment blocked the entrance, forcing him to return to his office amid tight security.
