Tuesday June 9, 2020 – Kirinyaga County MCAs have finally managed to impeach Governor Waiguru who was accused of violating the constitution and gross misconduct.
Twenty three (23) out of the 33 member County Assembly voted in favour of Governor Waiguru’s removal.
Four (4) MCAs abstained from voting, whereas six were absent from the House, said County Assembly Speaker Anthony Waweru.
A two-thirds vote composition (22) was needed to ensure Waiguru’s ouster bid succeeded.
The impeachment motion against Waiguru was tabled in the Kirinyaga County Assembly on March 31st, 2020, by MCA for Mutira Ward, David Kinyua Wangui.
Wangui accused Waiguru of, among other wrongdoings, abuse of office, gross misconduct and violation of the Constitution of Kenya.
But Waiguru, in her defence, said the MCAs were bribed by Interior Principal Secretary, Karanja Kibicho, who has interest in the Kirinyaga County seat in 2022.
