Governor complains of harassment by MCAs demanding him bribes

15 August 2016, 20:46 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Nyeri governor Nderitu Gachagua has complained of harassment by his Members of the County Assembly who have threatened to impeach him.

Gachagua said the MCAs are demanding bribes from him to drop the impeachment motion.

Speaking at Hiriga Primary School in Mathira constituency, the governor divulged that the Ward Reps have been demanding him money in various meetings.

He told the MCAs to brace for a legal battle if they make their threats true.

“They invite me for meetings and once I attend they demand bribes and threaten me. I will not bribe them and let the impeachment come. I will fight my way and remain in office,” said Gachagua.

He stated that if the impeachment motion, which has already been signed by 33 MCAs, sails through he will block it in court.

“I am protected by law and I will fight them in High Court, Court of Appeal, Supreme Court and even in Senate. They will not succeed because I have done nothing wrong. It is only politics,” said the embattled governor.

He claimed that the MCAs are being financed by his rival to destabilize the County and ensure no development happens ahead of 2017 elections.

The county boss was accompanied by his younger brother Rigathi Gachagua and area MP Peter Weru.

On his part, Weru urged the governor to work together with all elected leaders in the County.

“The governor and I have agreed to work together following a meeting in Parliament last week when he had been summoned by a Senate committee. Although he is surrounded by people who steal his show,” said Weru
