The National Assembly has dismissed as fake an Order Paper doing the rounds online purportedly listing a Special Motion on the Impeachment of Deputy President William Ruto.

National Assembly Clerk Michael Sialai, in a statement on Monday, dismissed the contents of the forged programme as fictitious and intended to mislead the Members of the National Assembly and the general public.

The fake Order Paper listed the impeachment of the DP on gross violation of the constitution and gross misconduct charges as the only House business scheduled for June 2 when the House resumes from its recess which began on May 6.

Sialai said no MP had given a notice of such a Special Motion to either his office or that of the Speaker of the National Assembly.

“No list of Members or signatures in support of such a motion has been received in either of the two offices,” the Clerk stated.

The Clerk equally pointed out glaring inconsistencies in the fictitious Order Paper.
