Kirinyaga MCAs To Move To Court And Challenge The Senate Report

Kirinyaga Members of County Assembly (MCAs) have vowed to move to the high court and challenge the Senate after reinstating Anne Waiguru as the Kirinyaga Governor after being impeached.

Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru on Friday survived an impeachment motion against her. This is after the senate eleven-member committee dismissed the motion seeking to remove her from office accusing her of abuse of office and gross misconduct.

The MCAs from the county have however not been pleased the ruling and have now vowed to move to the high court to challenge the decision.

On his Facebook page Ndegwa Njiru, the Kirinyaga County Assembly counsel said, they will be moving to the high court to challenge the illegal report from the Senate and the jurisprudence must be settled.

“On Monday, we are proceeding to the high court to challenge that illegal report from the Senate. That Jurisprudence must be settled once and for all,” a statement from Mr. Njiru said.

Two weeks ago, the Kirinyaga MCAs passed the motion of impeachment of Waiguru accusing her of having undermined their authority. 23 out of the 33 MCAs supported the motion of impeachment before it was passed and later tabled in Senate.

To hear the notion presented before them, the Senate selected an 11 member committee that conducted a two day hearing into the allegations by the MCAs.

The Kakamega Senator-led committee concluded its hearing on Wednesday afternoon and retreated to decide into the allegations.

“The Committee having investigated the matter under its mandate under section 33(4) of the County Governments Act and standing order 75(2) of the Senate Standing Orders reports to the Senate that it finds that the two Charges against the Governor have not been substantiated,” read the report by the committee.

On the charge of Gross violation of the Constitution and any other law, Senator Malala-led committee found that the allegation against the governor was not proved and was therefore not substantiated.

While on the second charge of Abuse of Office and Gross Misconduct, the committee established that the allegations were not proved and were also not substantiated.
