Friday June 26, 2020 – Embattled Kirinyaga Governor, Anne Waiguru, has survived an impeachment motion after a special Senate Committee cleared her of all the charges.
In a report tabled by the 11member panel chaired by Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala on Friday, the committee dismissed all the charges levelled against the County chief by the MCAs.
The committee concluded that Kirinyaga County Assembly did not substantiate their claims and failed to directly link the Governor to any of the particular allegations.
“None of the accounts was directly linked to the Governor.”
“However, we have recommended to EACC and DCI to investigate the particular charges and the officers involved,” said Malala.
Waiguru faced two broad charges of gross violation of the Constitution by failing to deliver the state of the County address in the County Assembly; and abuse of office by usurping powers of the accounting officer, an act that amounted to violation of the Public Procurement and Asset Disposal Act.
President Uhuru Kenyatta and National Super Alliance (NASA) leader, Raila Odinga, are said to be the men behind Waiguru’s acquittal since she is among proponents of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) in Mt Kenya region.
