Former Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee Ababu Namwamba has sued the National Assembly and the Powers and Privileges Committee, according to a report published by the Standard.
Namwamba, wants the court to stop the National Assembly from implementing the report saying it was used as a sacrifice to clear the name of the already tainted House.

He is also claiming that there are strangers in the Powers and Privileges Committee thus rendering their recommendations null and void.

In the application, Namwamba says that Speaker Justin Muturi has already admitted that Parliament has no powers to investigate theft and especially corruption. He has requested the case be certified as urgent.
The House dissolved the Public Accounts Committee and ordered it be constituted afresh. Some of its members were barred from being part of the new team.
