Political Analyst Herman Manyora has come to the rescue of the Trade, Industry and Investment Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria a day after MPs from Western and Rift Valley Region threatened to impeach him over maize importation.
The lawmakers led by Samson Cherargei, Didmus Barasa and David Pkosing among others said that it was unfortunate for the CS to order the importation of maize when the farmers in their respective counties were harvesting maize.
According to Manyora, the MPs and the Senators were only angry with Kuria for no reason, and that the threats to impeach him are only 'hot air' which will go off as soon as President William Ruto makes a call.
The University of Nairobi lecturer went on to say that the discussion on maize importation and the GMO in particular should be centered on President Ruto, since he started everything to do with GMOs way before his cabinet was formed.
"The lawmakers will not impeach Kuria because one phone call from the president will stop them. Senator Cherargei and the others are bitter about GMOs for no apparent reason, and if the impeachment motion is brought forth, they will not support it. Why are they even going for Kuria, it is the president who started these things even before Kuria and the other CSs were put in office."
