POLITICS
By | Jan 19th 2011 | 1 min read

Speaker Kenneth Marende has exonerated Saboti MP Eugene Wamalwa and his Kamukunji counterpart Simon Mbugua from a purported list of Members being investigated for drug trafficking.

Mr Marende directed that reports by Juja MP William Kabogo that US Ambassador Michael Ranneberger had also named the two in a document could not be authenticated and that the same be expunged from the records of Parliament.

"I further rule that the document described by honourable Kabogo as a dossier containing the names of honourable members involved in drug trafficking is inadmissible, and that it be and is hereby expunged from the records of this House," he added.

He further ordered that references to Wamalwa and Mbugua by Kabogo in the context are out of order.

Classified information

In a communication from the chair, Marende said he had acquainted himself with a document titled "Classified Information in the United States" and a document, which Kabogo described as a dossier containing the names of the two members, said to be involved in drug trafficking.

The Speaker said following the tabling of the documents by Kabogo, he had undertaken to acquaint himself with the documents on their authenticity and admissibility or otherwise.

Marende then ruled that the documents that Kabogo had laid in the House were inadmissible.
