Imo lawmakers set to impeach Speaker over guber ambition

delta-house-of-assembly-2-300x225

The rumoured governorship ambition of the Speaker of Imo State House of Assembly, Acho Ihim, has allegedly set him and a section of the lawmakers on a collision course.
The lawmakers are demanding the immediate resignation or impeachment of the Speaker, who is also president of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, Africa Region.
But the media aide to the speaker, Mr. Ben Ilochuonwu, has dismissed the alleged plot by some lawmakers to impeach the speaker over his ambition to succeed Governor Rochas Okorocha in 2019 as an unfounded rumour. He said  the speaker has no governorship such ambition.
He pointed out that the speaker and members of the House have been working in harmony ever since he was elected by his peers.
Daily Sun reliably gathered that some aggrieved lawmakers who allegedly accused the speaker of making the Assembly an extension of the Government House over his alleged gubernatorial ambition, resolved  after a meeting at the home of a top politician in the state, to remove the speaker if he failed  to resign.
One of the aggrieved legislators who spoke on condition of anonymity, said: “We have never had it so bad in this state where legislators have lost so much respect among the populace because of the ambition of the speaker who has turned himself as an aide of the governor. Because of his ambition to become governor in 2019, he is undermining the powers of the legislature to the extent that allowances due to members of the House are not paid to them.
“We have, therefore, resolved to ask the speaker to resign honourably or we will be forced to remove him in accordance with the constitution for incompetence.”
He said process of getting the required two-third majority has begun.
The lawmaker pointed out that they were not against the ambition of the speaker, but that it must not be at the detriment of members of the House of Assembly.
It is only in this dispensation that a speaker who is the number three man would be kept waiting by the Chief of Staff of the governor, he lamented.
Meanwhile, one of the allies of the Speaker,  Henry Uzoma Ezediaro, representing Oguta constituency, dismissed the alleged plot by lawmakers to change the leadership of the Assembly. He said the speaker has always ensured that members got their legitimate entitlements and that the rumoured governorship ambition of the speaker was not true.
“There is no problem in the House and there is no division. It is not true that members want to impeach the speaker because we have been getting our legitimate entitlements as at when due. So, it is nothing but a mere rumour.
“Besides, there is nothing wrong if the speaker is nursing the ambition to be governor but to say that some members of the House are plotting to impeach him on that basis is totally false, as the speaker has never told anyone, to the best of my knowledge, that he wants to contest for the governorship of the state in 2019.”

Church leader
A Zimbabwean church leader, Nyasha Light Nyatsungo is enmeshed in a sex scandal and might also be facing legal action, after his ex-girlfriend flooded social media with his nude photo.
It was gathered that the Nyatsungo allegedly sent a nude picture of his Cape Town based ex–side chick, Shingi Mavenge, to his other girlfriend only identified as Beula who later broadcasted it on social media.
According to H-Metro, in an apparent fit of rage, Mavenge posted a WhatsApp chat she had with Nyatsungo’s wife identified as Nyasha Nhahumbi as well as a group chat with some of her former lover’s concubines.
According to Mavenge, she has gotten information that Nyatsungo has at least 33 girlfriends and has ditched his wife of eight years.
She adds that Nyatsungo bedded a girl who was their neighbour as well.
Mavenge said that the church leader’s wife revealed that they even consulted their local pastor in Mutare who failed in his attempts to mend Nyatsungo’s ways.
According to H-Metro, Nyatsungo, a married father of two, has denied ever circulating the picture, labelling Mavenge as a bitter woman whom he just flirted with on Facebook and nothing more.
“This Nyasha guy must be stopped in his tracks. He is going to pay for all the damage that he has done to me. He was the only one who had that leaked picture and I am shocked why he would forward it to some other girl,” fumed Mavhenge who is working on taking legal action.
 
“I started dating this guy in 2015 and never knew he was married. He lied.”  fumed Mavenge yesterday.
“That guy is full of lies and at some point, we opened a group chat with his wife and some of his girlfriends. He normally targets single mothers” added Mavenge.
H-Metro was furnished with six other cellphone numbers of his girlfriend that include Fadzai, Mutsa, Essy, Juliana, Barbra among others. Mutsa confirmed she once had a relationship with Nyatsungo have since terminated it since she discovered he was married.
Mavenge confirmed they met once in Johannesburg when she had to fly from Cape Town to meet her man sometime in April.
“That night he didn’t even have money. I had to pay the R800 for the accommodation as he had no money. He wanted to have sex with me but I flatly refused. He even wanted it without protection and I said No. he looked terrible with clothes in a plastic shopping bag. I want to write a letter to Pastor Rex who is the head of (the church) in Harare so that this guy be stopped with his tricks and lies,” added Mavenge.
When contacted over the phone in Mutare Nyatsungo confirmed he knew Mavenge but never had a relationship with her.
“I know her and we once flirted on Facebook. We never had a relationship as she is alleging. I don’t know why she is bitter. I haven’t seen the nude pictures she is talking about but I heard about it from Beula. We live in a democratic country. She can go ahead and sue me if she feels her rights have been infringed upon. All the allegations she is making are false and I don’t know her motive in trying to tarnish my image,” said Nyatsungo.
He said he was still with his wife whose phone rang without response yesterday afternoon. Despite his denials, H-metro was furnished with pictures of Nyatsungo and Mavenge, the time they met in April.
