Governor Kawira Mwangaza's Move To Stop Her Ouster By Meru MCAs

Meru governor Kawira Mwangaza has moved to court in an attempt to scuttle a plan by members of the County Assembly (MCAs) to oust her. In a motion that has already been tabled in the county assembly, Abogeta MCA Dennis Kiogora accused the governor of alleged nepotism, illegal appointments and sacking of county workers.

However, governor Kawira Mwangaza in an application filed before the high court in Meru County, wants the county assembly which has been listed as the fifth respondent, and house speaker who is the second respondent, barred from going forward with the progress to Impeach her.

This comes days after the County Assembly started the process to Impeach her. After making the application under of certificate of Urgency, the governor's lawyer, Mutuma Gichuru and associates advocates.told the Court that her Impeachment was questionable.

The actions of the respondent amount to sub-judice in express violation of county assembly of Meru's standing orders No. 90 and is tantamount to interference of independence of the judiciary. He said.
