Kwale - Kwale Governor, Salim Mvurya and his deputy Fatuma Achani survived an impeachment plan by over 30 county assembly members.
This was after Mvurya met the MCAs Monday at Amani Tiwi beach hotel to iron out issues among them KES 400 million bursary kitty management which the two arms are fighting to control.
The deputy Governor Fatuma Achani who has been at the center of assembly debates for failing to advice the Governor wisely was conspicuously missing at the meeting.
Mvurya could not explain why Achani was missing in action.
The seven-hour meeting resolved the formation of nine-member committee from executive and assembly to address issues surrounding the bursary fund Act.
Speaker Sammy Ruwa said the two arms of government will not hold any public rallies until the nine-member committee gives their resolutions on the matter in question.

“We have learnt from what has happened and have agreed to solve our issues without engaging the public. We have said if any of us has issues the doors are open for deliberation," he said.
Governor Salim Mvurya asked locals and politicians in the area to support the County government so that they can solve the issues facing them amicably.
“We are asking politicians and non politicians to give us a space so we can iron out our issues,” he urged.
Mvurya maintained that neither the assembly nor the executive is holding the KES 400 million bursary funds adding that the controller of budget is the one to blame.
He said among other issues discussed at the meeting are implementation of motions and laws passed by the assembly.The assembly had claimed that since they took offices in 2013, the executive has not passed any single motion or resolution passed.
“Those are some of the issues the committee we have formed will look into,” said Mvurya.
Although the two arms of government have agreed to work together and call off public rallies across the region, Citizens democratic assembly group has maintained that they will start collecting signatures to send home MCAs.
