4 abstained in the motion, 25 voted for the bill and nays were 5.
This is after the chair of the 11-member Senate Committee moved an impeachment motion against him after it found him guilty of one charge.
The governor was accused of violating the Kenyan Constitution, something the committee approved and voted that was proved beyond any reasonable doubt.
In the case before the special committee, the county assembly of Wajir put forward 15 allegations in support of this particular charge of gross violation of the law.
Senator Omogeni told the Senate that of all the 15 allegations in support of the charge, the committee was not able to find any substantiation against 13 allegations and the same were dismissed.
On the allegation of failure to submit an annual report of the implementation status of county policies and plans, the committee arrived at a finding that the governor had not complied with this requirement.
The committee made an observation that not each violation or failure to observe a particular section of a statute should lead to impeachment.
