Nakuru MCAs will on Tuesday debate a motion to impeach Speaker Joel Maina Kairu.

Kairu has been accused of abuse of office and embezzlement of Sh15 million.

A motion filed by Bashara Ward MCA Peter Nyaguthii has been approved by the House Business Committee chaired by Majority Leader Stanley Karanja.

The committee said there are enough grounds to impeach the Speaker.

“We will give the Speaker a chance to respond to the allegations raised by the member,” Karanja told journalists.

Nyaguthii claims the Speaker embezzled Sh15 million which had been set aside for MCAs trips abroad.

He has also been accused of illegal hiring of staff in the County Assembly Public Service Board.
