Abdulahi: Senate wrong in Wambora impeachment

20 February 2014, 17:57 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Former Judiciary Service Commision member Ahmednasir Abdulahi has said that the senate made a mistake in impeaching Embu governor Martin Wambora.

Wambora was impeached by the senate after they found him guilty of financial misappropriation.

The impeachment was delivered despite the fact that Wambora had an existing court order in place which barred the senate from probing his case.

Abdulahi says that despite the senate having the constitutional power to impeach, it was wrong for them to go against a valid court order in delivering their judgement.

" The fact of the matter is that the senate ignored a valid court order which is a case of sheer double standards considering they were the same ones running to the courts for interpretation a few months back, he said in Naivasha Thursday afternoon.

Wambora has been re-instated as Embu governor for now until his case at the Embu High court is heard and Abdulahi says the senate should have moved the right way.

" By ignoring a court order, they have set a bad precedent, he added.

He also urged governors and senators to avoid the unnecessary tug of war on supremacy, saying they must all keep to their respective roles.

There has been a bitter war between the senate and governors over spending at county level, with the senate saying they will investigate the matters to the end while the governors have argued that they are not primarily in-charge of spending.
