Before the hearing on the motion to remove their governor, Kawira Mwangaza, the Meru County Legislature members broke into song and dancing outside the assembly.
The MCAs entered the assembly to pray before the hearing while dancing and singing to “Kaende Kaende” while wearing black suits, white shirts, and red ties.
“Galatians 6:9 NIV,” said Governor Mwangaza on her Facebook page. Do good deeds without growing weary because if we persevere, we will eventually reap a crop. I must be pleased. #serikaliyamamaikoimara.The governor wrote this hours before the hearing on the motion to remove her.
Following the High Court’s last-month reversal of a previous motion to impeach her, the Meru MCAs this week filed a new application to remove her.
Meru County Assembly Minority Whip Dennis Kiogora accused the Governor of usurping statutory and constitutional powers in a seven-day notice of motion filed on Tuesday, December 6. He also claimed that the Governor had been forced into the assembly and engaged in nepotism, unauthorized hiring and firing, and illegal appointments and dismissals.
The Abogeta West ward MCA said that the Governor cannot be legitimately expected or depended upon to operate in harmony with the staff and elected leaders at the national and county levels of government because of the discreditable conduct that have produced a toxic atmosphere.
Kiagu MCA Simon Kiambi Ngaruni who is the only MCA that has been supporting Governor Kawira Mwangaza has been expelled from all the committees in the Meru county assembly this is after Majority whip and Athwana MCA Jim Muchui wrote to the Meru county Assembly speaker Ayub Bundi demanding Kiagu ward MCA Simon Ngaruni to be expelled from all committees of the county assembly.
Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza declined to appear before members of Meru county assembly to defend herself. She says the reintroduction of impeachment motion is contempt of court order.
