Lucy Kibaki Dismisses Imanyaras Allegations.

Posted on February 4, 2008. Filed under: Butdoisay TRUE STORIES |

  

The government has refuted the allegations made by the Member of Parliament for Imenti Central, Gitobu Imanyara that he was assaulted by the First Lady, H.E. Mrs. Lucy Kibaki three weeks ago.

 ” We take great exception to these allegations and wish to state that the First Lady did not assault the legislator.”

In a statement, the government says it is astonishing that a lawyer of Imanyara’s stature would make such accusations a full three weeks after the alleged incident.

 ” We also state that no emissary has been sent to Imanyara to apologize over an assault incident that never took place. We hope that Gitobu Imanyara is not using the allegations as blackmail over the issue of government or cabinet appointments after he lost the position of Deputy Speaker in recent elections in Parliament.” It said.

The First Lady has instructed her lawyers to immediately take legal action against Imanyara and any other individual or outlets that perpetuate or communicate the wild allegations made, because they border on character assassination, blackmail and are part of a wider political scheme aimed at besmirching the office of the First Lady.

Earlier, the Imenti Central MP Gitobu Imanyara refuted claims that he was dead.

Rumors have been circulating that the MP who made his way back to parliament had died or hospitalized in critical condition.

Anxiety has been high in his constituency for the last few weeks since the rumor began.

Addressing the press on Monday, Imanyara termed the rumor as perturbing and disturbing and assured Kenyans that he would serve them at his best.

Unsuccessful in the Kibwezi parliamentary race where he lost to Prof. Philip Kaloki (ODM-K) in the just concluded general elections, former Assistant Minister for Tourism and Wildlife and the Chairman of the Independent Party (TIP TIP – Amani Kenya), Kalembe Ndile is reportedly eyeing the Emuhaya parliamentary seat following the election of the MP-elect Keneth Marende as Speaker of the National Assembly.

The outspoken former MP and a defender of the rights of squatters, Kalembe has mostly been based in Mombasa and Makindu, occasionally commenting on public interest matters. But now that he has trained his eyes on going back to the National Assembly through the Emuhaya parliamentary seat in Western province particularly with PNU’s support, ODM will be casting a nervous eye to their Deputy Captain Musalia Mudavadi who is expected to lead the ODM onslaught when by-elections are called. Kalembe has been sending ‘political feelers’ through grassroot leaders in the constituency.
