Friday June 12, 2020 – Nairobi Senator, Johnstone Sakaja, has proposed a plan that he feels the Senate should follow to discuss the impeachment of Kirinyaga County Governor, Anne Waiguru.
In a post on social media on Thursday evening, Sakaja suggested that impeachment motions are best discussed by a committee of the whole house.
Sakaja said Waiguru’s impeachment should be discussed by a committee of the whole house to avoid a scenario of bias and corruption.
“I said these words emphatically on the 21st of January about the Kiambu impeachment.”
“My principled stand remains the same.”
“Plenary is the way.” Sakaja stated.
Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, had stated that the Senate was considering setting up a committee to decide on the fate of the Kirinyaga Governor.
He claimed that the team will not be objective but may be swayed to give a favourable outcome for Waiguru.
Waiguru was impeached by Kirinyaga County Assembly on Tuesday over what MCAs termed as gross misconduct and violating the constitution.
