Impeached Wambora contests suspension

11 February 2014, 09:25

Nairobi - Impeached Embu County Governor, Martin Wambora, denied the corruption charges the Senate Committee laid against him.

“I was picked from the Ministry of Finance by the former Permanent Secretary and I worked for him for six years where I was administering billions of shillings in security funds in the Office of the President and was never summoned over embezzlement even once,” said Wambora.

Wambora who was hitherto a career civil servant said he was a devout Christian and was spirituality grounded with humble beginnings in the church where he was previously an altar boy.

His accusations include contravening of procurement rules in the purchase of KES 35 million worth of maize seeds that never germinated, procurement of vehicles and authorizing of renovation of Embu Stadium at a cost of KES 50 million up from KES 8 million.

Charles Njenga, who represented the Embu County assembly at the hearings sought to have the committee to hold Wambora accountable for the charges leveled against him saying that that is what the constitution means by devolution.

Fellow counsel representing Embu County, lawyer Charles Nganga said that the Governor should be taken to account as he deliberately flouted the law.

Wilfred Nyamu, who represented Wambora, defended his client’s actions saying Wambora had no role, whether actual or imagined, in respect to any allegations made against him.

The hearings by the Senate committee will continue until the end of the week before the committee can make a report which they will table before Senate for debate and subsequent decision on Wambora’s fate.
