Thursday June 11, 2020 – Central Organisation of Trade Union (COTU) Secretary General, Francis Atwoli, has appealed to the Senate to save Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru after MCAs impeached her on Tuesday.
Speaking on Thursday, Atwoli asked President Uhuru Kenyatta and National Super Alliance (NASA) leader, Raila Odinga, to save Waiguru from impeachment because she was impeached for supporting the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).
Waiguru was one of the Mt Kenya leaders selected last year to lead the BBI campaign in the region following a meeting of GEMA community leaders with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Atwoli said Uhuru was using BBI to change how politics are done so that Kenya remains stable and prosperous.
“The MCAs should talk and address the issues being raised,” Atwoli said.
He concluded by saying that Waiguru is the only Governor in Mount Kenya who has stood strongly with BBI.
Waiguru was impeached after 23 out of 33 MCAs voted her out over alleged gross misconduct.
Four of the Ward Reps abstained from the vote, while six were absent for the motion filed by Mutira MCA, David Kinyua.
