County Assembly sends home four ministers

26 March 2014, 15:59 Dareel Eric

Vihiga - The Vihiga county assembly has stamped its authority in the region by instigating an impeachment motion to send home four executive committee members in Governor Moses Akaranga’s administration.

The motion that was debated deep into Tuesday night, saw the fate of the four members being sealed after recommendations by four house committees that investigated their conduct.

Newton Okwiya (Trade and Industrialisation), Elmanus Vodoti (Education), Evans Kahiga (County Treasury) and Johnston Khejeli (Public Service) are the ministers who face the sack.

The assembly Speaker Daniel Chitwa said that the impeachment was in line with sections 42 and 43 of the County Government Act that requires the assembly to recommend to the governor to relieve CEC members of their duties upon misconduct.

Vodoti and Kahiga were accused of gross incompetence while Okwiya was sent parking following mishandling the allocation of stalls at Chavakali market.

The manner in which stalls allocation at Chavakali market was handled sent the matter to court thus hindering revenue collection by the county government.

Khejeli was accused of involvement in politics and failure to make positive progress in the county administration.

While contributing to the impeachment motion, the MCAs alleged that Khejeli wrongly handled public administration docket.

He was also accused of spending SES 7 million to buy uniforms for 35 newly appointed sub-county and ward administrators.

Nixon Butiya, who is Shiru ward representative, said that Khejeli had made politics the order of the day.

“He is interfering with operations in other county departments,” Butiya said.

The county treasury boss, Kahiga was also accused of arrogance, poor budget implementation and unprofessionally handling procurement and contractors.

The move to remove Kahiga will greatly impact on the budget making process whose deadline for submission is March 31.

The assembly concluded that the education CEC has not been able to implement major education policies among them employment of ECDE teachers, turning bursary fund into a loan and using ward administrators to fight the MCAs.
