Mayor goes to court to stop meeting to oust him

11 April 2012, 12:12 Kelvin Wanjohi

Nyahururu Municipal council mayor Timothy Waweru Nduhiu  obtained a court order stopping his fellow councilors in the council to convene a meeting aimed at ousting him a few minutes before the meeting could start.

Nyahururu Principal Magistrate Mrs Muthoni Wachira issued the order to the council after the mayor, barely one year in office, through his lawyer, Martin Waichungo and barred the special general meeting

The civic leaders had intended to discuss the conduct of the mayor and to pass a vote of no
confidence on him and remove him from office in what the mayor termed as illegal to eject him out of office.

He said that his colleagues had come up with the plan due to his declination to stop a probe into the financial impropriety allegations against the town clerk, Meshack Kimani.

The mayor had allegedly declined to stop investigations into allegations that Kimani had misused his office, saying he was corrupt was corrupt and incompetent.

The councilors had not given him a chance to respond to the ‘framed-up’ charges.

The matter will be heard  in two weeks time to enable the clerk to answer the charges against him.
