Senate Committee doesn't recognize Wambora's reinstatement

19 September 2014, 10:59 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - The Senate's County Public Accounts and Investments committee has insisted that it does not recognize the reinstated Embu Governor, Martin Wambora, and that he will not appear before it to respond to audit queries raised in the Auditor General's report regarding the County's use of allocated funds.

The committee chaired by Kakamega Senator, Bonny Khalwale, has instead summoned the County's Deputy Governor, Dorothy Nditi for the grilling on grounds that Wambora ceased to be the County head following the Senate's approval of his impeachment.

"As far as this Committee is concerned, Wambora ceased being the Embu Governor long time ago and that position has never been vacated. This committee cannot reverse the decision of the Senate," said Khalwale.

He added that Wambora should not purport to be the Governor to send County officers to the committee to respond to matters relating to Embu County government.

"We shall move in accordance with the law. In the absence of the Governor, it is the Deputy who takes over. Nditi must appear before us on October 30, because in the eyes of the Senate, she is the Governor," said Khalwale.

Wambora had sent the County's Finance Executive Committee member, John Njagi and the County Secretary, Wilson Gitonga among other senior officers to respond to audit queries from Khalwale's committee but they were dismissed.

"The fact that the court stopped Nditi from taking oath of office as the new Embu Governor does not bar her from carrying out her constitutional mandate. She must come so that operations of the County are not paralyzed," said Khalwale.

Wambora was impeached by members of Embu County Assembly for violating the constitution especially in the procurement process and abuse of office and declared him unfit to be the Governor by the Senate's ruling.

However, the High Court refused to swear in Nditi as the new Governor and instead reinstated Wambora to the gubernatorial position as investigations into his impeachment proceeded.
