Friday June 12, 2020 – Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader, Raila Odinga, is said to have resolved to marshal his troops in the Senate to vote against the impeachment of Kirinyaga County Governor Anne Waiguru.
Waiguru was impeached by Kirinyaga County Assembly on Tuesday over what the MCAs termed as gross misconduct and violation of the constitution.
According to sources close to Raila, ODM has agreed to save Anne Waiguru because she is the face of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) in the Mt Kenya region.
“Waiguru is the face of the BBI report in Central Kenya, she must be saved at all costs,” said a Senator allied to Raila Odinga.
Central Organisation of Trade Union (COTU) Secretary General, Francis Atwoli, asked President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga on Thursday to save Waiguru from impeachment because she was impeached for supporting BBI.
Atwoli said Waiguru is the only Governor in Mount Kenya who has stood strongly with BBI.
