 The recent move by president Uhuru Kenyatta to insist that Governors, Senators and Mps to resign over corruption continues to attract sharp criticisms as a section of Women representatives term it illegal and an act of dictatorship.

Led by Kisumu Women representative Rose Nyamunga the leaders fired back saying that the president had no moral authority to call for the resignation of County leaders adding he should only focus at national level.

This comes even as the head of state maintained that the constitution states that once the integrity of an elected leader is in question, he should no doubt resign.

Speaking in Nairobi immediately after landing from an International trip Mrs. Nyamunga called on other leaders and members of the public to come out gun blazing in resiting the move by the president.

The president through State House spokesman Manoah Esipisu said that there are no grounds for the legislators to refuse to resign from office over corruption allegations since they are elected leaders.

The Kisumu Women representative view has been echoed by Governors who are now preparing the ground to for a seemingly hairsplitting legal duel in fight of what appears to be an Executive directive.
Already the Governors lawyer Ahmednassir Abdullahi has set the ball rolling by advising the governors mentioned in a report on corruption to stay put.
