Showdown as impeached governor supporters clashes with MPs and MCAs

05 September 2016, 19:39 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - There was a political showdown in Nyeri town on Monday after supporters of impeached governor Nderitu Gachagua clashed with county MPs and MCAs who were moving from a closed door meeting.

The hundreds of supporters, who were on motor bikes and others on foot, attempted to block the elected leaders at Baden Powell road round-about.

MPs Kanini Kega (Kieni), Kabando wa Kabando (Mukurweini), Peter Weru (Mathira), Mary Wambui (Othaya), Priscila Nyokabi (Women Representative) and more than 30 Members of the County Assembly were walking along Kamakwa road from Outspan hotel, where they had a meeting to deliberate on way forward after Governor Gachagua’s impeachment last week.

The MPs’ bodyguards heavily guarded the law makers and enabled them to move across the crowd untouched by the protesters.

They were heading to White Rhino hotel to meet political seats aspirants to discuss issues of newly formed Jubilee Party.

Further, the young men and women while armed with placards and vuvuzelas, were protesting against the meeting saying the elected leaders had ganged up against the governor.

“The MPs and elected leaders are troubling our governor and destructing his development agenda. He should be left alone. They have ganged up against him,” said one of the protesters.

Anti-riot police officers manned the hotel to ensure the protesters, who kept on condemning the leaders, do not gain entry.

Some were sleeping on the road, Kenyatta Highway, to block movement of vehicles.

However, the MPs and MCAs urged the Senate Speaker Ekwe Ethuro to expedite the process of forming a selective committee to investigate charges leveled against the Nyeri Governor.

MP Kanini Kega said following the meeting, the MPs are convinced there were enough grounds to impeach the governor.

“We have listened to the MCAs and we concur with them that the governor should leave office,” said Kega.

MP Peter Weru asked the County Senator Mutahi Kagwe to keep off the impeachment process and take a non-partisan stand.

“We are urging the Senate to give the governor and the allegations a fair hearing. The charges leveled against him must be proven and sideshows be kept off,” said the County Women Rep Priscilla Nyokabi
