Senate summons Embu governor for Monday impeachment hearing

06 February 2014, 17:55 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Senate has summoned Embu governor Martin Wambora to a hearing next week to deliberate on his impeachment.

The committee formed to look into the matter has asked Wambora and his deputy Dorothy Nditi to appear before it Monday February 10, 2013.

The committee, in a statement, said it was hoping to see both the governor, his deputy and their legal representatives attend the hearing or else be forced to take constitutional action on the matter.

“The Special Committee invites you to appear and be represented before the committee during its investigations. The first meeting of the committee shall be held on Monday, 10th February 2014 at 10am in the Senate Chamber, 1st floor, County Hall building, Parliament Road Nairobi.

“If you choose to appear before the committee, it requires that within three days of this invitation, you file with the office of the clerk of the Senate your answers to the particulars of the allegations against you which are annexed hereto, it read.

The governor has insisted that he will not attend any senate instituted hearing, saying he has a court order in place to prevent him from attending.

The senate though, said that it is within its jurisdiction to move the case forward with far reaching consequences for Wambora and his deputy if they do not appear Monday.

" “Take note that should you choose not to attend before the Special Committee, on the date and time specified in this invitation, the committee and thereafter the Senate shall proceed with this matter in accordance with the Constitution and the law, without further reference to you,” it warned.

The senate has persisted with the matter despite the High court in Embu ruling that it does not, arguing that it is within its constitutional mandate to continue with the process.
