Residents hold prayers for impeached Governor

26 October 2015, 13:10 Joseph Njung'eh

Murang'a - Scores of Murang’a residents flocked Ihura stadium Sunday to pray for their impeached Governor, Mwangi wa Iria.

The prayers which were conducted by bishops and pastors from different churches were also attended by Kiharu MP, Irungu Kangata and his Kangema counterpart, Tirus Ngahu.

The two MPs castigated the local MCAs who supported the motion to impeach the Governor without substantial reasons.

They defended the Governor against claims of gross misconduct and sought for sobriety from the local leaders.

Ngahu stressed that the MCAs should have sought an alternative strategy to address challenges facing the County government rather than impeaching the Governor, which may derail development in the region.

During the prayers, a local MP and deputy Governor were accused for sponsoring the impeachment motion.

Some of the 15 MCAs who opposed the impeachment motion claimed the assembly was under pressure from a local MP to oust wa Iria from office.

Kambiti MCA, David Kabaka and his Gaturi counterpart, Rosemary Wakuthii bitterly recounted how they received threatening calls from the MP and the deputy Governor promising them huge sums of money to support the impeachment motion.

The MCAs said their nominated colleagues were also threatened with revocation of their nominations if they did not support the impeachment motion against the Governor.

On his part the Governor said he respects the Senate and he is ready to explain his case before the House committee.

Wa Iria said he was initially working amicably with the MCAs until the local MP started interfering with the affairs of the County government.
