Lusaka on the receiving end after rescheduling of Thursday’s meeting

The meeting planned for Thursday by the Senate to discuss the controversial revenue sharing formula won’t take place.

Following the news, some senators are up in arms against speaker Kenneth Lusaka threatening him of impending impeachment. Lusaka faces accusations for bungling the process to help stop the stalemate.

The Speaker’s hands remained tied with the Senate currently on a one month recess. However, should the majority or minority leader seek for a sitting with requisite members of the Senate, the Speaker can hold a special meeting to discuss the matter.

Infuriated senators

Senators allied to Team Kenya have, on the other hand, threatened to start a process that would fast track Lusaka’s impeachment. They argue that outside forces have influenced the Speaker’s decision regarding the revenue sharing formula debate.

It’s alleged that Lusaka no longer carries out his job seriously as the matter would have been passed on the house as of Yesterday.

Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina insisted that outside forces won’t stop them from making the right decision for Kenyans.

Mutula Kilonzo Jr, the Makueni Senator, said a process of impeaching the senator would derail all their moves. He instead urged his colleagues to focus on the job ahead.

Nandi Senator Samuel Cherargei has, however, defended Lusaka, saying he abided by the Standing Orders.

Resolve the revenue sharing formula matter

The news comes when counties continue grappling with the lack of funds to run their calendars seamlessly.

Wycliffe Opranya, the council of governors chairperson, has called on a quick resolution to the issue.

Tuesday marked the eight-time where Senate failed to agree on the best revenue sharing formula.

During the sitting, violent scenes and tongue lashing from some senators forced the Speaker to adjourn the session until Thursday.

Depending on whether they agreed with the Speaker, Senators either chanted “curfew, curfew, curfew,” or ” shame, shame, shame.”

Although Vihiga senator George Khaniri foresaw the scene and stepped in to resolve the matter, curfew time trashed his efforts.
