Former majority leader Aden Duale who is the outgoing Garisa Town ship Member of parliament has angrily reacted to the decision made by President Uhuru Kenyatta on the choice of leaders he has chosen to be part of the transition committee ahead of the 9th August election.
In a series of tweets on his official twitter handle,the united democratic alliance MP,could not hide his anger.He said the appointment of the committee was blatantly illegal.He said that sction 5 of the assumption of the office of the president Act 2012 designates the secretary to the cabinet as the chairperson of the assumption of the office of the president committee.
"Blatantly Illegal.I have said it, let me say it again!Section 5 of the Assumption of the Office of the President Act, 2012 designates the Secretary to the Cabinet as the Chairperson of the Assumption of the Office of the President Committee," he revealed.
He said the article points out who a secretary to the cabinet is.He ruled out Uhuru's choice of secretary to the cabinet Mr Kinyua since the parliament never approved him to serve as such and the president did not appoint him as such before.
The power transition committee appointed by Uhuru is meant to make it easier for the new fifth president who is going to be elected after on 9th August.Uhuru's term is expected to end this coming August.The people on the power transition committee are interior cabinet secretary Fred Matiangi,KDF forces commander Fred Kibochi,Joseph Kinyua,Head of national police srvice Hilary Mutyambai,Anne Amadi,Kinuthia Mbugua among others.
As the election nears it is our hope that peace will prevail as Kenyans vote for a new president.Kindly comment,share and follow for more political updates as the happen.
