NAIROBI, KENYA: A notice of motion to impeach Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph ole Lenku was Wednesday table in the National Assembly.

Kisumu Central MP Ken Obura gave a notice of the motion which if successful, will force President Uhuru Kenyatta to sack ole Lenku.

“The house expresses it dissatisfaction with the conduct of the Cabinet Secretary for Interior and National Coordination Mr Ole Lenku and censures him for his total inability and incompetence to secure peace and security” read Obura in his notice of motion.

Although Obura wanted the motion to be debated Thursday afternoon, Deputy Speaker Joyce Laboso said the House Business Committee will meet to set a date when it will be disposed of.

A section of leaders from the Maasai community are opposed to the motion saying that Lenku should not be blamed for the rising cases of insecurity in the country.

They argue that national security is a collective responsibility of the Government and that ole Lenku should not be sacrificed.

The CS has been in the eye of the storm following increased incidences of armed attacks on citizens the latest being in Mpeketoni, Lamu County and Gunana at the border of Mandera and Wajir counties.
