Kiambu MCAs threaten to impeach Kabogo

Kiambu Governor William Kabogo has been urged to honour Senate summonses or be impeached.
Six MCAs also want the government to move from Thika town to the gazetted headquarters in Kiambu town.

“We are fed up with the lies of the governor… and we are giving him 14 days,” said Kiambu Town MCA James Njenga.
Njenga said Kabogo had asked for six months to renovate the county headquarters, but it is now close to two years.

Ngewa MCA Karungo wa Thang’wa said Kabogo has no moral grounds to ask the anti-corruption commission to investigate graft.

More than Sh30 million was allegedly spent on grass for Thika Stadium, he said.Kiambu majority leader Patrick Chege said the offices in Kiambu are still under construction. Others MCAs included Martin Wachira (Riabai), Ngugi Uiru (Ndumberi), Kahawa Sukari’s Karanja Ngeche and George Gitau (Gatongora).

40 members voted to pass the impeachment motion with only 19 voting  against it. The motion required a two thirds majority to pass.

The impeachment was occasioned by an ad-hoc committee report on the conduct of the Deputy Governor who has been critical of Governor Alfred Mutua over the recent past.

The committee report listed four grounds for impeachment among them gross violation of the constitution and acts of parliament, gross misconduct and abuse of office.

Kiala had earlier unsuccessfully moved to court to try and stop the impeachment proceedings.
