Kirinyaga MCAs Vows To Restart The Impeachment Of Governor Anne Waiguru

Kirinyaga MCAs have vowed to restart the impeachment process to remove Governor Anne Waiguru just days after the Senate reversed their decision

The MCAs, in a press conference held on Monday, June 29, claimed that Governor Waiguru had survived the impeachment despite the grave accusations and therefore she would disregard the law.

The Press statement read, “In the words of Fred Van Lente, If there are no consequences to your mistakes, there is no reason not to make them.”

“We now understand your nonchalant attitude towards the rule of law,” the document reads.

Further the MCAs claimed that ‘though justice had been delayed’, they would keep pushing.

“Neither your deep pockets, nor your influence, will desist our pursuit of justice for the people of Kirinyaga. So help us God,” the MCAs proclaimed.

This is despite Council of Governors Chair Wycliffe Oparanya asking MCAs to shelve plans to impeach county bosses.

Oparanya speaking at a press conference alongside Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa asked county legislators to focus on Covid-19 preparedness.

“What are saying is that all these money MCAs are spending in hiring lawyers, why can’t we use them to buy PPEs, test kits and expansion of bed capacity?” Oparanya argued.

Devolution CS Wamlwa observed that MCAs had made it fashionable to impeach governors, going on to mention the latest threat involving Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu.

“It is their constitutional right to oversight the executive but I don’t think this is the time when impeachments are a fashionable thing to do,” Wamalwa stated.
