Senate summons Machakos deputy Governor Kiala

07 August 2014, 17:42 William Korir

Nairobi - Machakos deputy Governor Bernard Kiala has been summoned by the senate Monday to answer to impeachment charges.

Kiala has been accused by the Machakos County assembly of gross violation of the Constitution and provisions of several Acts of Parliament; including the County Government Act, Public Officers Ethics Act, National Cohesion and Integrity Act and the Leadership and Integrity Act.

He has denied the charges.

In a statement from the Senate Committee set up to probe his impeachment, he has been ordered to appear before it Monday August 11, 2014 to defend himself.

The committee comprises leader Mutahi Kagwe,Sammy Leshore, Abu Chiaba, Hassan Omar, Anyang’ Nyong’o, Kennedy Mong’are Okong’o, Martha Wangari, Ben Njoroge, Lenny Kivuti , Daisy Kanainza and Agnes Zani.

Kiala has said previously that the charges leveled against him are malicious and lack in substance.

He is yet to confirm whether he will appear before the committee and if he will have any witnesses on his side.

" The Senate 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, 11th August 2014 at 10am in the County Hall Chamber, 1st floor, County Hall Building, County Road Nairobi,the statement read.

" If you choose to appear before the committee, the committee requires that you file with the office of the Clerk of the Senate a soft copy and 15 hard copies of your answer to the particulars of the allegations setting out how you propose to appear before the Special Committee, whether in person, by advocate, or in person and by advocate, it added.

Kiala is known to have fallen out with Governor Alfred Mutua who accused him of having lost focus and at one point taken away his official vehicle and security.
