Kericho Governor Chepkwony lauds Senate over fair hearing

05 June 2014, 20:58 William Korir

Nairobi - Kericho Governor Paul Chepkwony has thanked the Senate for a fair hearing after he was cleared of impeachment charges by members of his county assembly.

The Senate absolved Chepkwony of charges leveled against him after an 11 member committee was formed to probe his alleged misconduct and cleared him of all charges after a week of deliberations.

Chepkwony had been accused of being in gross violation of the constitution, the County Government Act 2012, the Public Finance Management Act 2012 and the Public Procurement and Disposal Act.

The Senate however ruled the evidence provided against Chepkwony did not meet the threshold to warrant his impeachment.

And on arrival back in Kericho, Chepkwony was thankful to the Senate for handling his case well.

" I thank God and you my followers for being with me in these tough times. I truly thank you, he said.

" I would also like to thank the Senate as an institution for the fairness they accorded me in the hearing. It is vital that they showed that they can be trusted and in this case they have done so, he added.

Chepkwony also insisted that he has not hard feelings over the impeachment motion and urged leaders to continue to work together for the development of the county.

" I wish to ask for unity as we lead the County forward and serve the good people of Kericho, he added.

32 MCAs voted for his impeachment, while 15 were absent during the debate and did not vote on the motion sponsored by nominated MCA Albert Kipkoech.
