Senators have voted for Waiguru’s Impeachment hearing to be done by a select Committee, that will be selected by the Speaker. This comes after 45 Senators voted for the committee hearing, whereas 14 voted against it.
A day after National Assembly Minority Whip Junet Mohammed indicated the Raila-led party was lobbying to save Waiguru from being impeached, ODM chairman John Mbadi dismissed them assertions as personal.
Mbadi said that ODM had not taken a position on the matter adding that the Senators would make a decision based on evidence adduced by the Kirinyaga County Assembly, which impeached Waiguru last week.
Mbadi, who is also the National Assembly Minority Leader, said it would be a reek of hypocrisy for ODM to blindly defend Waiguru before interrogating evidence of abuse of office and alleged misappropriation of public funds.
He said the fight against corruption was part of the March 9, 2018 pact Raila entered with President Uhuru Kenyatta in their famous handshake.
