Failure to do so, the legislators vowed that the Assembly would initiate impeachment motions of the executives.
Majority Leader and Athi Ward MCA, Peter Kilonzo, also recommended that Mumo and Ngina “be forwarded to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for appropriate disciplinary action”.
Furthermore, the Assembly resolved to push the matter to the Assets Recovery Agency (ARA) for recovery of all monies, whether salaries, assets or otherwise, that were received or acquired by the two for the period of their employment.
