In a revelation that comes as crushing news to Meru Deputy Governor Reverend Mutuma M’ethingia who is poised to take over leadership of the county in case Senate clears the impeachment of Governor Kawira Mwangaza, details of the full blueprint of the impeachment point at a well-coordinated complicated long plan.
Baringo Women Representative Florence Jematia was speaking while making an appearance on Citizen TV’s morning show Daybreak which was hosted by the station’s presenter Trevor Ombija. Alongside Jematia in the studio were analyst Kamande and Nambale Member of Parliament Geoffrey Mulanya.
Jematia claimed that upon impeachment of Governor Mwangaza, the next phase is to also kick out his deputy, after which the assembly speaker will hold fort for 90 days before the county goes for fresh polls. She argued that the plan is sweep away the Mwangaza Administration completely.
The Governor of Meru County Kawira Mwangaza was impeached on Wednesday.
Sixty-seven (67) Members of County Assembly (MCAs), who were present in the House on Wednesday, December 14, unanimously voted to remove her from office over alleged nepotism, illegal appointments, unlawful dismissals, misleading campaigns against other leaders and gross violation of the Constitution.
Mwangaza, who won election on Independent ticket, was the first woman in Meru region to be elected governor.
She defeated political heavyweights Mithika Linturi (first runner-up) and Kiraitu Murungi (second runner-up).
Mwangaza got 209,158 votes against Murungi’s 110,850 in the August 9, 2022 gubernatorial race.
Mithika Linturi, who ran on the region’s popular United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Party, got 183, 859 votes. Linturi is now the Cabinet Secretary for Agriculture in President William Ruto’s administration.
Shortly after being sworn into office in August, Mwangaza fell out with MCAs, whom she accused of attempting to arm-twist her over ward development fund.
The ward representatives, on the other hand, accused Mwangaza of being a lone ranger, who refused to heed their calls for consultations.
Following her December 14, 2022 impeachment, the motion now goes to the Senate, where the senators will vote to uphold the county assembly’s decision, or overturn it.
