Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei has made it clear that the Senators will not pursue the impeachment of Siaya Deputy Governor William Oduol, despite the escalating conflict between Oduol and his boss, James Orengo.

In a Twitter statement on Monday, Cherargei called the impeachment attempts “sickening and nauseating”.

“The impeachment proceedings and removal from the ODM party of Siaya Deputy Governor Oduol by Tinga (Raila Odinga) is sickening and nauseating for exposing corruption in the Siaya County government.

“As a senate, we shall NOT impeach DG Oduol nor confirm impeachment proceedings from Siaya County assembly against him. This once again has confirmed Tinga (Raila) as the Lord of corruption, poverty and impunity,” Cherargei said.

Following allegations of mismanagement within the county, the ODM party has made the decision to expel Siaya Deputy Governor William Oduol. In a meeting held by the party's Siaya County officials in Siaya town on Sunday, it was determined that Oduol should be urged to resign as he no longer aligns with the party's vision and goals.

“This meeting has unanimously resolved that the Siaya County Deputy Governor be compelled to resign from his position since he no longer subscribes to the ideals and aspirations of the party. The meeting has resolved that he be expelled, and is hereby expelled,” read a statement from the party.
