Mbita Member of Parliament (MP) Millie Odhiambo has been taken to court following remarks she made regarding President Uhuru Kenyatta weeks ago.
Activist Philip Njuguna on Wednesday moved to court seeking to have Ms Odhiambo’s remarks declared “in violation of the Constitution and constitutes a denigration of the Presidency.”
Through his lawyer, the activist argued that the lawmaker should not be protected by the parliamentary immunity and privileges for her utterances against the Presidency, which is a constitutional institution.
“Her utterances are in contravention of the constitution as they constitute denigrating the Presidency. The words uttered have by extension violated the Parliamentary privilege and immunity and such is not available to her defence,” stated the court documents.
