In what can only be described as an incredible stroke of genius, Nairobi County governor Johnson Sakaja has made a risky but confident promise which effectively makes it impossible for Nairobi County Assembly members to impeach him as the county residents sit and watch.
This was following friendly playful digs that netizens began throwing at the governor after his News Year’s Day mass messages which saw Nairobi voters receive well-wishes on their phones from the county boss. This led to KISS FM presenter Chito Ndhlovu mocking Sakaja that his message came empty-handed when it should have been accompanied by an MPESA message.
In an emphatic response, the first term governor promised that next time, this message would come by with money. His tweet read,
Sakaja Arthur Johnson
Replying to @ThisisCHITO
Haha. Next time basi ￼
With such a promise, it’s next to impossible seeing the county boss run into the fate that befell Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza.
Mwangaza was just days ago saved from Impeachment by the Senate.
The Senate Special Committee, led by Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale, said that none of the allegations raised against Governor Mwangaza by Meru County Assembly Members could be substantiated or proved by her accusers.
Khalwale said that the Committee was investigating the Governor against allegations of nepotism, illegal appointments, incitement and bullying of other leaders and forceful entry of the Meru County Assembly none of which could be substantiated.
Governor Mwangaza had been impeached by 67 out of 69 Members of County Assembly in Meru.
During the hearing of the impeachment motion, Kawira’s lawyers argued that the governor was being held to a double standard, particularly in light of the role her husband, Murega Baichu, played in the county.
While being cross-examined, governor Kawira made no apologies for some of the wrongdoings she was being accused of, including appointing members of her family to county positions.
Mwangaza said her husband’s appointment as a patron for the youth in Meru county was not motivated by nepotism. His role was to provide moral and financial support, and he was never paid by the county.
