Governor Waititu Impeached

The Senate has impeached Kiambu Governor Ferdinard Waititu from office after the majority of Senators voted to remove him on three charges.

Waititu was kicked out on three separate charges: Gross Violation of the Constitution & Public Finance Management Act, Crimes Under the National Law and Gross Misconduct/Abuse of office.

All charges saw majority of the senate vote in favor of his removal from the county boss office. A majority of 24 votes were required for the impeachment motion to be passed.

Waititu is said to have snubbed the County Public Service Board in employing more than 600 casual workers whom he later fired without the essential procedures. This would, in turn, expose the county to suits by the laid-off workers.

Governor Waititu is also accused of using force in taking a property that was owned by a widow in Thika.

According to him, the Kiambu County Assembly did not meet the required quorum of 62 MCAs with him claiming that only 57 lawmakers attended the meeting.

The impeachment sees Waititu make history as the first governor to be successfully impeached by the Senate.
