Former Kiambu Governor Waititu cleared for Nairobi Gubernatorial race by Kenyans247(1): Mon 28, December, 2020 06:46pm
Former Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu has been cleared by the Registrar of parties to via for Nairobi Gubernatorial by-election as an independent candidate.

On Monday, the Registrar of parties approved Waititu’s symbol as an independent candidate, giving him the green light to join the race to City Hall as governor Mike Sonko's replacement.

Waititu lost his seat as the Kiambu Governor in January, after being impeached by the Members of the County Assembly in Kiambu, who accused him of three charges; Violation of the Constitution of Kenya 2010, Crimes under the National Law, and Abuse of office/ Gross Misconduct.

The Senate, in a plenary session, voted to uphold the impeachment, after they found him guilty of the charges. Waititu became the first governor to lose his seat.


In the first charge, 27 Senators voted for his removal against 10 who objected, in the second and third charges, 28 voted in support while 11 against.

Waititu has officially joined the race to City Hall, to replace Sonko who was impeached after 88 out of 122 Members of the Nairobi County Assembly voted to support his ouster.

Sonko was accused of four charges including a gross violation of the Constitution and other laws, abuse of office, violation of national laws, and lacking the mental capacity to run the county government.

The Senate, later on, upheld his impeachment after he was found guilty of all the charges. He became the second governor to lose his seat after Ferdinand Waititu.
