MPs storm Governor’s office seeking to remove him

07 September 2016, 09:47 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - A group of four Nyeri Members of Parliament stormed impeached governor Nderitu Gachagua’s offices seeking to forcefully remove him from the workplace.

The lawmakers including Kabando wa Kabando (Mukurweini), Kanini Kega (Kieni), Peter Weru (Mathira) and Priscilla Nyokabi (Women Representative) were however ejected by police officers who followed them later.

The governor was also out of office for official duties during the incident.

The MPs, who have already endorsed the Governor’s impeachment by Members of the County Assembly (MCAs), said he should not be in office.

They accused the County boss of corruption, citing the refurbishment of a rental house  to accommodate some County Government workers at a cost of KES 81 million.

“The Governor is a liability to Nyeri people and we are supporting the MCAs' bold move to oust him. The Senate must concur with that decision and send him home,” said Kabando.

He urged the Senators to handle the Nyeri case as a special matter and ensure ‘they do not disappoint the residents’.

He also complained of receiving three insulting messages through his mobile phone from one of the Governor’s kin whom he did not name.

“If he uses intimidation and bribery to find his way back, we shall hold a mass action to remove him again from office,” said Kabando.

Kieni MP Kanini Kega said the County MPs will pursue for a parliamentary report that had declared the governor unfit to hold a public office following corruption allegations.

“Chapter Six of the constitution must be upheld. We shall look for that report and table it in parliament,” said Kega.

The MPs were accompanied by various political seats aspirants in the County who also welcomed the impeachment.
