The Orange Democratic Movement –ODM will file a motion of no confidence against the Constituional Implementation Oversight Committee Chair Abdikadir Mohammed (inset) led by Gwassi Mp John Mbadi for being biased in his duties.
Speaking at Kegoge Market in Kitutu Chache constituency Friday, Mbadi said that Mr. Abdikadir had started showing open bias in discharging his duties and that his alignment to anti-constitution implementation forces had made him slow down on his urge for the full implementation of the country's supreme laws.
He said Kenyans should support people who have the country's wishes at heart saying that nominated MP Ms. Millie Odhiambo who is Mr. Abdikadir's deputy should take charge of steering the overseeing of the implementation of the constitution as she believes in the course.
Ms. Odhiambo also claimed that there was an elaborate plot by the anti-constitution implementation forces to oust the chairman of the Constitution Implementation Commission - CIC Mr. Charles Nyachae whom they believe is becoming a stumbling block to their efforts to maintain the status quo.
Thursday, CIC threatened to move to court to block attempts by Members of Parliament to mutilate the Constitution.
CIC chairperson Charles Nyachae said the amendments to the Elections and Political Parties Acts are designed to secure personal interests of the serving MPs. He had thus, called on President Mwai Kibaki not to accent to the unconstitutional amendments.
Thursday, Mps deleted section 22 (1) (b) which could have seen Legislators and Councilors excluded from the requirement until after 2017. This was after Transport Minister Amos Kimunya sought an amendment on section of 22(2) of the election act.
On that note, Ms. Odhiambo claimed Mr. Abdikadir had advised his side of the coalition to get rid of Mr. Nyachae from the commission because he had refused to comply with them.
She said ODM was for the full implementation of the constitution and that it will protect it to the latter.
Her sentiments were supported by Budalangi MP Mr. Ababu Namwamba who told Kenyans to be vigilant and protect the constitution they fought for and passed in 2010. He said Mr. Nyachae was a true defender of democracy and that he should be left to work.
On ODM matters, the Party's Executive Director Ms. Janet Ong'era said the party's manifesto which will soon be launched by the Party Leader the Hon. Raila Odinga will put into consideration all the aspirations and wishes of Kenyans. She said, the document will be made public and that Kenyans will be able to access it online.
Ms. Ong'era said that in the coming month, the party's National Governing Council will meet to endorse the amendments to the party's constitution which will outline the process of the party's election and nomination rules. She said this will be in alignment with the new constitution, the Political Parties Act and the Elections Act.
Starehe MP Ms. Margaret Wanjiru who is also the team leader of the ODM Reloaded told Kenyans to look beyond tribes when electing the next President. She said the best suited person to lead Kenya and steer it to the next level is Dr. Odinga whom she described as a man who had the interests of the Nation at heart.
Others who addressed were Minister Chris Obure, Assistant Ministers Richard Onyonka, Simeon Ogari, Magerer Langat and Manson Nyamweya, MPs Dr. Joyce Laboso, Josephat Nanok, team leader of the Raila Odinga Presidential Campaign team Mr. James Ongwae, ODM officials from Kisii County among others.
