Tit for tat; Hon. Ndegwa Wahome announces comeback with revenge plan to impeach Kimemia

Before even the dust settles on the debacle that was the Rurii ward by-election which saw the UDA candidate Muraya Githaiga clinch the bitterly contested seat from under the nose of County governor Francis Kimemia, another rude shock was awaiting him yesterday after it turned out that besieged Hon. Ndegwa Wahome had laid an ambush through Gatimu MCA, Kieru Wambui who arrived ready and itching to table a Notice of Motion of Impeachment against governor Francis Kimemia.

 


It took the combined effort of MCAs who support the governor, and a contingent of police, to stop the anti-Kimemia Assembly members who had arrived with their supporters.

 


In the end, the impeachment bid ended in a cropper, as the plotters were unable to even access into the assembly building.


Kieru Wambui decried the situation, saying that there was no valid reason for blocking them from the premises other than the fact that the move was meant to stop them from tabling their motion.

 


Wahome has been impeached four times, the first time being in in December last year with the courts being his main refuge.

 


The Speaker who is also the chairman of the County Assemblies Forum is perceived to be at loggerheads with governor Kimemia.


Leadership in the county has been marred by a myriad of problems ranging from suspension of MCAs by the ruling Jubilee party for alleged misconduct, attempted theft of the mace at the assembly, sacking of county assembly workers and the members of the County Assembly Public Service Board to the current crisis surrounding Wahome.

 


At one point, Wahome closed the assembly, a move that was opposed by Kimemia claiming that it was aimed at stopping MCAs from serving the Clerk with a notice of motion that sought to remove him (Wahome) from office.


MCAs have vowed to block Wahome, but will be in contempt of court if they allow deputy speaker Zachary Njeru to act as a speaker before the case is heard and determined.

 


As per the law, it is only the substantive Speaker who is supposed to swear-in a new member of the assembly.
