Sober county assemblies will dismiss the National Super Alliance motions seeking the creation of People’s Assemblies, Speaker for the Nyandarua county assembly has said.
Wahome Ndegwa has gone on to add that he is waiting eagerly for the presentation of the motion in his assembly to understand under which sections of the Constitution it is based on.
“I am waiting for it so that I feel the pleasure of dismissing it so that the Constitution of this country can prevail,” Ndegwa said recently as quoted by the Star.
According to him, the Constitution is cognisant of only two assemblies; the National Assembly and the Senate.
To create other assemblies, Ndegwa noted, was an act of criminality and illegal and is a desperate attempt by the Opposition to seek relevance and self satisfaction.
“We are not going to allow Nasa to create trouble so that they can create a platform for dialogue,” Ndegwa said.
He says the people’s assemblies advocated by the Opposition are meant to perpetuate criminal intentions whose actions are not provided for in law.
According to him, Nasa thrives in crises and moments of disorder and are now attempting to give it credence and some legitimacy by seeking the support of some county assemblies.
As reported earlier by Zipo.co.ke, the coalition is using the grassroots assemblies as one of the strategies to try and agitate for a “legitimate” presidency after saying it doesn’t recognise the August 8 and October 26 presidential elections which were both won by the incumbent Uhuru Kenyatta.
The Raila Odinga-led coalition is using the creation of the people’s assemblies as a fall back strategy in case the Supreme Court sanctions the swearing in of President-elect Kenyatta.
