Ward reps want to impeach governor

11 September 2013, 22:00 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - A group of Members of County Assembly (MCA) from Nyeri have filed a notice of motion seeking removal of Governor Nderitu Gachagua from office.

The impeachment motion was filed by MCAs from TNA party with an aim of having a vote of no confidence against the governor.

The group led by majority leader in the assembly, Mwangi Kibuu said they have no confidence with Gachagua been in office.

Kibuu accused the governor of grossly violating the provisions of the constitution on leadership and integrity.

He said the governor spent more than KES.210 million without the supplementary budget approved by the county assembly or for any development expenditure whose report is well documented by the office of the controller of budget in its quarterly County Budget Implementation Review Report.

He also stated that the governor has consistently and occasionally misappropriated public funds without any approval from the county assembly in that the said office is now under investigations by Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).

“The governor grossly abused his office by disrespecting MCAs by issuing inflammatory statements designed to discredit the characters of members,” added Kibuu.

The notice of motion for impeachment was signed by 30 members out of the 47 therefore bringing split and more dispute in the assembly.

However, another group of the representatives aligned to Gachagua came out defending the governor’s office saying he has not misappropriated any fund as alleged.

The members led by the County Finance committee chairman Mwangi Ngiria rubbished the list signed saying it was just an attendance list which was produced by the majority leader.

He and former Nyeri town mayor Edwad Muteru claimed that the rival group is being financed by Gachagua’s political opponents.
