MP John Mbadi Tells Parliament What To Do With Wetangula After Engaging In Active Politics

Nominated Member of Parliament Honourable John Mbadi has now accused National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula of engaging in active politics and yet he is perceived to be a neutral member especially while discharging his duties in the house.

In a statement, the vocal Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) said although the law does not compress a speaker to resign as a party official, the Parliament should relook into that law and bar Speakers of both houses from being a party official.

According to Mbadi, Speakers holding political party's position will not be deemed into being impartial into their duties.

This came after Wetangula, who is the Ford Kenya party leader, openly engaged himself in active politics after campaigning for his candidate, Wafula Wakoli in the upcoming Bungoma Senate by-elections.

"When he promotes party interests out there, then he will not maintain neutrality in Parliament. It is a grey area that Parliament needs to look at because the Speaker needs to be neutral," exclaimed Mbadi.
