High Court Stops Waiguru Impeachment Over Covid-19 by Saocv(1): Tue 07, April, 2020 10:09pm
Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru on Tuesday, March 7, survived an impeachment attempt, albeit temporarily, thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic.

A section of Kirinyaga MCAs had filed a petition to impeach the county boss over abuse of office claims.

The High Court temporarily suspended the case on Tuesday, over the pandemic that necessitates the need for social distancing to curb its spread.

According to a report by Citizen TV, Justice Weldon Korir pointed out that the governor did not have ample time to defend herself.

The case was suspended until the pandemic was contained with the judge ruling that business at the assembly was to continue as normal.


Mutira Ward Representative Kinyua Wangui, in a report on Tuesday, March 31, filed the motion, accusing the governor of gross violation of the constitution, abuse of office and gross misconduct.

“The county assembly now resolves to remove Hon. Anne Mumbi (herein referred to as the County Governor) from the office of the County Governor of Kirinyaga, pursuant to Article 181 (1) (a) & (c) of the Constitution of Kenya 2010, Section 33 of the County Governments Act, 2012 and the County Assembly Standing Order. No 58,” the motion read in part.

Wangui alleged that Waiguru had intentionally "refused, failed or neglected" to duly deliver to the county over the 2018-2019 fiscal year.

Wangui further claimed that Waiguru had undermined the county assembly's authority.

In her response, Waiguru termer the motion "petty and frivolous", stating that the MCAs were "hellbent on political brinkmanship" by filing a motion to impeach her instead of focussing on the fight against Coronavirus.

"The issues raised are so basic that they are an embarrassment to the constitution that they seek to protect and the county that elected these MCAs," Waiguru stated in part.
