Wambora vows to mend fences with MCAs

01 October 2014, 10:22 Joseph Njung’eh

Embu - Embu Governor, Martin Nyaga Wambora has pledged to closely work with area Members of County Assembly for the sake of development.

Wambora said contrary to media reports, his County government and the County Assembly were in good terms.

“I will work with Embu MCAs whatsoever so that Embu can develop. So far, we have launched about 40 development projects in conjunction with MCAs and we are set to launch other 60 projects very soon,” said Wambora.

He spoke at a Nyeri hotel after a Court of Appeal judgment that upheld a High court decision that reinstated him as the Embu Governor.

The appellate court said the Kerugoya High court decision delivered on April 16 should stand.

Wambora had moved to the appellate court contesting that though the High Court reinstated him, the court erred in law by failing to acquit him of the charges leveled against him by the county assembly.

“Keroguya High Court Judges Hedwig Ong’udi, Cecilia Githua and Boaz Olao misdirected themselves by ruling that the county assembly and the senate were the best judges,” Wambora contested.

However, the appellate court ruled that the Senate and county assembly were best placed to determine whether a motion for the removal of a Governor was in accordance with the Constitution.

Wambora had been impeached by the County Assembly and consequently by the Senate.

While issuing the judgment, Judges Alnasir visram, Martha Koome and Otieno Odek faulted the High Court for failing to exercise constitutional mandate of determining whether the impeachment was inconsistent with the constitution.

“We find that the judges erred in law by failing to exercise their constitutional mandate to determine whether the purported removal of Wambora as Governor was inconsistent with or in contravention of the constitution,” said the judges.
