Two county executives set to be impeached

01 September 2014, 21:01 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Two members of the Nyeri County Government Executive committee may soon be rendered jobless after a notice of motion to impeach them was filed at the County Assembly.

Paul Mwangi Ngiria, Chinga ward MCA, filed a notice of motion to impeach the executive in charge of Agriculture, Livestock and Co-operative Shadrack Wangombe Mubea.

Also in the list to be shown the door is Governor Nderitu Gachagua’s right hand man, the Secretary of Trade and Investment, Stanley Miano.

Ngiria who is also the chairman of Finance Committee said he want the two fired over the manner in which they have handled marketing and milling of coffee, under the county pool initiative.

"MCAs supporting the notice of motion to kick out the two, have surpassed the required threshold of 16, in fact, there are more than 20," Ngiria said.

Mubea is alleged to have misled and misadvised coffee farmers to deliver their produce at Kenya Planters Co-operative Society (KPCU) Sagana.

He is also accused of securing milling and marketing agreements on behalf of farmers without consulting and his choice of Kenya Co-operative Coffee Exporter (KCCE) to market the county coffee.

He is further accused of securing the purchasing of fertilizer worth KES.45 million at subsidized prices and created a revolving fund without approval from the House.

"He engaged the services of external auditors to verify the debts owed co-operatives societies and which was finalized on July, but failed to give the audits report to the House," Ngiria added.

His counterpart, Stanley Miano is accused of being unreachable and lack of respect for the assembly as well as failing to commit himself on when farmer's will be paid their dues of the sale of coffee, by handling the matters casually.

"Miano has failed to provide satisfactory responses of the whereabouts of the coffee proceeds, market progress and went ahead to divert  farmers’ payments from Taifa Sacco to Co-operative Bank of Kenya, without consent," Ngiria noted.

He alleged that Miano failed to secure good markets, despite his constant foreign trips in search of the same and has also failed to produce catalogue for all direct sale of coffee abroad.

“He has misused and misappropriated county funds by spending on activities that were not budgeted for or approved by the assembly for example engaging external auditors and the purchase of fertilizer," Ngiria claimed.
