Thursday June 18, 2020 – Renowned Nairobi lawyer, Ahmednasir Abdullahi, has come to the defense of embattled Kirinyaga Governor, Anne Waiguru, who was impeached by Kirinyaga County Assembly last week.
Waiguru was impeached for gross misconduct and violation of the constitution and she is now waiting to see whether the Senate through a select committee will approve her impeachment.
Millions of Kenyans, especially from the Mt Kenya region, want the Governor impeached over what they termed as mass embezzlement of public funds and exaggeration of tenders.
However, according to Ahmednasir, who in legal circles is known as Grand Mullah, Waiguru is a victim of men’s malice and the Senate should reject her impeachment.
“We treat WOMEN differently and BADLY…and Anne Waiguru is obviously and always a victim of men’s political malice…many times…always…the process in the Senate is a secondary factor…and we all know that…,” Ahmednasir said.
On Tuesday, the Senate formed an 11 member committee that will investigate the impeachment motion facing Waiguru.
The members of the committee are Senator Abshiro Halake, Michael Mbito, Mwangi Paul Githiomi, Beth Mugo, Anuar Liotiptip, Philip Mpaayei, Cleophas Malala, Beatrice Kwamboka, Stewart Madzayo, Judith Pareno and Moses Kajwang.
