There was drama at the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) headquarters on Monday after Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga stormed the boardroom.
Omanga was one of the 10 politicians summoned by NCIC on grounds of propagating political violence in the last week’s by-elections in Kabuchai and Matungu constituencies.
Omanga was allegedly angered by the commission for being kept waiting for hours while she kept part of the bargain by availing herself at 11 am as directed by NCIC.
An angry Omanga stormed the boardroom as Kasipul MP Charles Were was being quizzed.
“We have been seated there for the last one hour… You should’ve given us timelines, if you told me (to come) 12 pm I would have come here at 12 pm…but you told me (to come) at 11 am…so if you knew you were taking an hour or two for every member, you should’ve calculated and given me my time…it is so unfair,” she ranted.
She termed this unfair given that she had other commitments to attend to but she was forced to wait.
The commissioners tried to calm her down asking her to be patient.
Some of the politicians summoned by NCIC include Fesial Barder of Msambweni, Chris Wamalwa (Kiminini), Benjamin Washiali (Mumias), Aisha Jumwa (Malindi), Cleophas Malala (Kakamega Senator), Gladys Wanga (Homa Bay Woman Rep), Fred Kapodi (Mt Elgon and John Waluke (Sirisia).
NCIC Chairman Dr Samuel Kobia claimed that the 10 politicians were in contravention of the dictates of Chapter Six of the Constitution on integrity.
He said that the commission will push for their removal from office through the Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission (EACC).
“We are not just seeking criminal justice we also want these leaders and others like them to be out of office forthwith once they behave in that dishonorable and shameful way,” he said.
