Chepkwony ready to face Senate over impeachment

26 May 2014, 17:48 William Korir

Nairobi - Kericho Governor Paul Chepkwony is ready to face the Senate as he seeks to defend himself over impeachment charges by members of his county assembly.

He will meet the senate committee formed to probe his impeachment starting Tuesday morning as he starts the process of redeeming himself.

Chepkwony wa impeached two weeks ago over what was termed as gross misconduct and violation of his office and constitution.

He will stand before the 11 member commitee starting 9.30 AM.

" I am ready for it and very confident that as long as I get a fair hearing, I will be able to defend myself and prove that I have done nothing wrong, he said Sunday in Kericho.

" The said violations have not been proven at any point and I and my team have proof of no wrong-doing as accused.

He did however ask that he get a fair hearing, something that Embu Governor Martin Wambora accused the Senate of not affording him.

" I just hope for a fair hearing and in that spirit, I have not gone to court to challenge the earlier ruling, which is in absolute good faith, he added.

The MCAs led by nominated MCA Albert Kipkoech accuse him of violating the provision of the County Government Act and Public Procurement Act on grants and donations and failing to follow due process regarding public and private partnerships.

He is also accused of recruiting personnel and creating offices in the county contrary to Sections 59, 60, 61 and 62 of the County Government Act.

11 senators namely committee leader Chris Obure, his assistant Kiraitu Murungi, Beatrice Elachi, Catherine Mukiite, Stephen Sang, Daniel Karaba, Fatuma Dullo, Billow Kerrow, Danson Mwazo, Mutula Kilonzo JR and Abdirahman Ali Hassan will be tasked with hearing Chepkwony's case.

Once submissions are finished, the commitee will be expected to provide a full report and conclusions of their probe next week.
