Anne Waiguru impeachment: Kirinyaga MCAs vote to kick out governor

Kirinyaga Governor Anne Mumbi Waiguru was Tuesday impeached after 23 ward representatives voted in favour of a censure motion debated before the County Assembly.

None of the members present during the debate defended the former Devolution Cabinet Secretary with four Members of the County Assembly opting to abstain.

Six other members did not attend the sitting according to Assembly records.

Assembly Speaker Anthony Waweru said he will forward the resolutions of the House to Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka within two days.

The motion was moved by Mutira Ward Representative David Kinyua Wangui who accused Waiguru of abuse of power, gross misconduct and irregular awarding of tenders.

The Member of County Assembly accused Governor Waiguru of deliberately failing to submit county plans and policies to the County Assembly for approval.

The Governor was also accused of irregularly awarding tenders and buying a county vehicle without tendering.

Waiguru moved to court to counter the allegations terming the move illegal and a contempt of court.
