Friday June 12, 2020 – Four Kirinyaga County legislators have asked the Senate to be open-minded when debating the impeachment of Governor Anne Waiguru.
The four led by Senator Charles Kibiru and MPs Robert Githinji (Gichugu), Kabinga Wathayu (Mwea) John Wambugu (Kirinyaga Central) promised to accept the verdict if the process is fair.
In a statement to Kenyans, the lawmakers said they do not hold any personal vendetta or ill will against the Governor.
“It is our earnest request to the Senate to adjudicate the matter informed by the issues that guided the overwhelming desire of the MCAs, who are the bona fide representatives of the people of Kirinyaga, to impeach the governor,” they said.
The Senate will discuss the impeachment of Waiguru next week and the Speaker of the Senate, Ken Lusaka, has already received communication from Kirinyaga Assembly Speaker Anthony Gathumbi informing him of the resolution of the motion on the impeachment of the Governor.
Waiguru was impeached on Tuesday by Kirinyaga County MCAs over what they termed as gross misconduct and violation of the Constitution.
