Office –Members of County Assembly MCAs have unanimously impeached Governor Kawira Mwangaza from office.
The unanimous agreement to vote out the embattled Meru County Governor was triggered by what the area MCAs attributed to high handedness and open gross misconduct.
All 59 MCAs who were present in the House on Wednesday evening voted in support of the motion to remove Mwangaza from office. Ten MCAs, however, kept off the matter.
The first-term Governor, who was elected on an independent ticket, is accused of misuse of public funds, gross misconduct, contempt of the county assembly and court among other charges..
Earlier on Wednesday, the Court of Appeal in Nyeri declined to stop the Meru County Assembly from debating Governor Kawira Mwangaza’s ouster motion.
The governor had moved to the Appellate court to stop her planned impeachment but the court said it would rule on the matter on Friday, October 27, 2023.
This comes as the second attempt by the Meru County MCAs to oust Governor Kawira with with whom they have been at loggerheads since she assumed office.
Her final fate now lies in the hands of the senate which saved her the first time she was brought before it.
