He said the executive was hardworking and diligent having worked selflessly to ensure the land rights of the Lamu people are protected and that the mover of such a motion harbored personal ill intentions against the executive.

“This whole thing is politically motivated.This is nothing more than people just wanting to frustrate my administration. The executive isn’t going anywhere because she isn’t guilty,” said Timamy.

He said those who want the executive impeached have their own motives for doing so and asked them to come clean to the public about it.

Timamy said some individuals were not comfortable with the astute nature with Rashid was handling land issues hence wanted to bring her down.

“Those who want her out have their own reasons for that.Let them be true and tell the Lamu people why they really want to impeach the executive,”said Timamy.
