Exiled political activist and lawyer Miguna Miguna has reacted to Kirinyaga Governor Ann Waiguru’s impeachment.
Taking to Twitter, Miguna congratulated Kirinyaga MCAs for voting out Waiguru whom he described as President Uhuru Kenyatta’s ‘mistress’.
“Congratulations Kirinyaga for impeaching despot Uhuru Kenyatta’s mistress and lootingw assistant Ann Waiguru. It doesn’t matter now even if the #CoronaCoalition rescues her using the dead senate and compromised judges. Viva!” He said on Twitter.
Kirinyaga MCAs on Tuesday, June 9 passed a motion to impeach Waiguru and recommended her removal from office over abuse of office and gross violation of the law.
Out of 33 MCAs, 23 voted in favour of the motion by Mutira ward representative Kinyua Wangui to remove the county boss from office.
Four MCAs abstained while six were absent.
Kinyua accused Ms Waiguru of gross violation of the Constitution by failing to deliver the annual State of the County address to the county assembly.
The governor is also accused of using her office to unconstitutionally confer a benefit to herself when she was irregularly paid travel allowances which amounted to Sh10.6 million.
The MCAs accused her of not travelling yet she received the money.
Moments after the debate kicked off, chaos erupted at the County Assembly Tuesday morning as the MCAs exchanged blows and kicked each other, temporarily disrupting the session.
It all started when the Mutira MCA Kinyua Wangui rose up to move the motion of impeachment against Ms Waiguru and declared that she must be kicked out.
As he moved the motion, two MCAs – Antony Munene (Karumandi) and Lucy Njeri (nominated) – allied to the governor shot up, claiming that their signatures had been forged as their names appeared in the list of those seeking to impeach Waiguru yet they were opposed to the motion.
The two confronted Wangui, vowing that they would not allow the motion to go on.
There were chaotic scenes at the assembly as the two MCAs shouted and heckled Wangui.
It took the intervention of sergeants-at-arms to restore calm in the assembly.
