Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza has candidly stated that she is not shaken by the motion tabled before the Meru County Assembly to have her impeached. Speaking at Nkubu Social Hall Wednesday,23, 2022, Kawira said that her lawyers had the case. She assured Meru people that she is still working despite the trending stories about her.
After the August election, it was joy and celebration across Meru county for the supporters of Kawira Mwangaza. Unfortunately, that joy shortly and slowly faded away after the Meru county MCAs concerns. According to Kawira Mwangaza, the MCAs are out to sabotage her.
The Members of the County Assembly accused Mwangaza of violating some chapters of the county government constitution. An impeachment motion has been drafted and signed by 68 of the 69 MCAs. This motion has come too soon making things for the county boss even harder and more complicated.
The county boss is accused of appointing his husband Murega Baichu as Youth Patron and her sister as a bodyguard. Although the job given to Baichu was considered to be a no-pay job, MCAs did not agree with the governor's decision.
Murega’s presence in almost all government meetings did not please the Meru Members of the county assembly.
Being the sponsor of the motion, Dennis Kiogora, MCA Abogeta West accused Kawira of reappointing County Secretary Rufus Miriti without the approval of MCAs.
“The governor’s continued stay in office under the prevailing toxic environment will inevitably undermine efficient service delivery and thus hurt the interests of the people of the county,” said Meru County speaker Ayub Bundi.
The assembly notified the public of the impeachment plan and organized public participation on November 28 at the assembly.
The vocal governor has however told off Kiogora and the MCAs planning to impeach her. “Meru will be a model county in terms of development. I am not a coward,” said Kawira
