Several leaders in Kenya have been calling upon President Uhuru Kenyatta to sack government officials who have failed to deliver.
Amid probes into various corruption allegations, Energy CS Charles Keter risks an impeachment motion in Parliament for allegedly failing to implement President Kenyatta’s directive to connect a Wajir area to the national grid.
Eldas MP Aden Keynan has pledged to sponsor a censure motion against the Energy CS for ignoring to solve Wajir electricity problems as the President ordered.
Keynan said that in 2017 Uhuru, while campaigning in Wajir, promised to have the area connected to the national grid. But it hasn’t happened two years on.
The Eldas lawmaker told journalists he will move the censure motion in two weeks if the Energy CS does not act.
He accused the CS of failing the President through ‘blatant refusal’ to implement Uhuru’s promise.

President Uhuru and Deputy President William Ruto promised on April 8, 2017, that residents would have reliable electricity.
“Mr President, commitments are godly, come to the rescue of your people,” Keynan appealed to Uhuru.
The MP, who is also a commissioner at the Parliamentary Service Commission, confirmed that he is collecting impeachment signatures.
