Meru MCA tables fresh impeachment motion against Governor Kawira

Governor Kawira Mwangaza

The Meru County Assembly today reignited the leadership wrangles within the county, after tabling a fresh notice of motion for the impeachment of governor Kawira Mwangaza.

According to the order paper for this morning’s sitting, Abogeta West MCA Dennis Kiogora is expected to give the seven days’ notice for the impeachment debate.

The governor is accused of nepotism, illegal appointments and unlawful dismissals, among others.

This comes even after Justice Wamae Cherere the Meru High Court last week barred the impeachment motion against Governor Kawira Mwangaza citing a flawed process.

“I’m guided by the principle that a party, such as a petitioner, is not required to suffer illegality or breach of her rights and resultant injustice on the solace that her grievance would be remedy either by the Assembly or the Senate,” she said.

Cherera said it is a singular authority of the court to deal with threatened violations before they happen.

“Upon considering the application and preliminary objection and after hearing the presentations of the council, this court finds that the procedure adopted by the respondent to process the proposed motion of impeachment is flawed and has the effect of violating her constitutional rights,” she ruled.
