The Senate has given direction on the embattled Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu’s impeachment following Monday 6 January announcement.
According to a report, the Senate is set to have a special seating on 21 January, where the Kiambu Boss’ impeachment will be taken into consideration as the main agenda.
In a press conference, the Senate Majority Whip Kipchumba Murkomen announced that since Waititu’s impeachment came up during recess, there was no legal authority to derail the House from deliberating on the matter.
“The House has been notified that we shall have a special sitting on 21st this month to consider the impeachment of the Kiambu Governor,” the outspoken Murkomen announced.
The embattled Kiambu chief lawyer Mwangi Ndegwa, however, said his client’s impeachment was not done according to the required procedure.
A total of 63 County Assembly Members reportedly voted in support of the governor’s impeachment motion tabled by Ndenderu MCA Solomon Kinuthia who accused the county boss of abuse of office and gross misconduct.
Waititu was also accused of recruiting over 600 casual workers illegally without considering the County Public Service Board views in the filed petition.
