Wambora says his impeachment woes are political

14 May 2014, 12:26

Nairobi - Martin Wambora, who ceased to be the governor for Embu County after being impeached twice by the Senate, has blamed his political woes on his decision to ditch APK for TNA party in last year’s elections.

Wambora wanted to contest the Runyenjes parliamentary seat on an APK ticket but later changed his mind and ditched the party for TNA and vied for the Embu governor seat.

Sources that are close to him said a big political grudge between Wambora and Embu Senator Lenny Kivuti, who is also the APK’s deputy leader started at that time, Daily Nation reports.

Wambora was impeached Tuesday following a special sitting by the Senate.

The decision was reached after a special vote convened by senators.

 35 senators chose to vote for his impeachment after the committee set to investigate his conduct recommended his impeachment.

He was accused of three charges which include the violation of public procurement and disposal act, violation of public Finance Management Act and violation of constitution.

The result was a blow to him after he earlier lost a court petition that sought to stop the senate from going on with his impeachment debate.

He had returned to office last month after the High Court ruled that he had been impeached despite having a pending case in court over his impeachment by Embu MCAs.
