A push by majority of members of the National Assembly Transport Committee to vote out their chair David Pkosing flopped on Tuesday.
The vote of no confidence against Pkosing hit a dead end after two members withdrew their signatures.
The MPs Ayub Savula and Gideon Mulyungi had initially appended their signatures to support the motion against Pkosing.
The withdrawal of the two left only 9 out of 19 members in support of the motion a move that led to abortion of the no-confidence vote.
However the nine members have now written to the Speaker of the National Assembly saying it is unfair for him to call off the meeting and that the two MPs should not have been allowed to withdraw their signatures.
According to a ruling issued by Speaker Justin Muturi on 6th December 2018, members are not allowed to withdraw their signatures once appended and taken to the clerk.
Interestingly, the letters by the two MPs were received on 10th December just a day before the ruling banning the withdrawal took effect.
