Matungulu MP Stephen Mule has vowed to initiate an impeachment motion against National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi over the Finance Bill 2018 that is now Law.
The Wiper MP claims that the Speaker instead of being neutral, did everything to make sure the bill passed in Parliament.
Mule says Muturi should have suspended the voting when the House turned chaotic and unruly.
He accused the Speaker of openly siding with the government in passing the bill.
Mule said he will seek MPs signatures to have the speaker recalled.
“The Bill was designed to sail through despite majority of us opposing it,” Mule said.
He addressed the press in his constituency on Saturday.
Mule said the new Law will hurt common Kenyans.
He accused the President of failing to safeguard Kenyans' interests.
Mule said he will fight the matter in court should the impeachment fail.
Garissa MP Aden Duale has, however, rubbished the impeachment threats against Muturi saying it will not see the light of the day.
On Thursday, MPs voted and passed the Finance Bill 2018 despite the chaotic scenes witnessed in the House.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has since signed the bill into Law that imposes 8% VAT on fuel and petroleum products.
