24 Kirinyaga MCAs sleep in county assembly to support Waiguru impeachment

24 MCA’s in Kirinyaga slept in the county assembly in support of Governor Anne Waiguru’s impeachment motion which is set to be debated on Tuesday, June 9.

The MCAs are reported to have switched their phones off before turning the assembly into a bedroom in bid to avoid distractions from the Jubilee Party officials who had plans to stop the impeachment.

The ward representatives said they were determined to impeach the county chief despite a court order stopping the process. According to Mutira ward MCA Kinyua Wangaiu the chances for the motion to succeed were very high.

“Our governor who claims to have a pre-existing condition making her vulnerable to the coronavirus has been holding meetings in her house and traversing the county giving food. Chances of this motion succeeding are 100%,” said Kinyua.

Kinyua who tabled the impeachment motion accused Waiguru of gross violation of the Constitution by failing to deliver the annual State of the County address to the assembly.

“The governor has deliberately refused, failed and/or neglected to deliver the same for the financial year 2018- 2019 which amounts to a gross violation of the Constitution and the County Government Act,” said Kinyua.

In her defence, the governor said there was no requirement that such an address be issued in the assembly saying she issued one in November 2018 and a similar one at Kerugoya Hospital after the health crisis, on September 12, 2019.

The governor is also accused of using her office to improperly confer a benefit to herself when she was irregularly paid for travel allowances by way of imprests amounting to KSh 10.6 million yet she did not travel.

Another charge was on the establishment Kirinyaga Investment Development Authority (KIDA). The County Public Service Board had directed the county to wait until the salaries for KIDA board members were approved by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC).

However, Waiguru is reported to have ignored the recommendation from the board and went ahead to pay the board members.
