Tharaka Nithi Senator, Kithure Kindiki, who is also a close friend and supporter of deputy president William Ruto has reacted after 25 Senators voted in support of impeachment of Wajir Governor Mohammed Mohammud Yesterday. Hon Kithure welcomed the move saying that the governors are responsible for theft of public funds.
According to Hon Kithure Kindiki, senators have been fighting for more resources to counties but these ends up in the pockets of the Govenors and few individuals without benefiting common citizens. He claims that few other Governors are yet to be impeached, already three have been impeached."3 Governors impeached in just over a year. A few more likely to follow suit shortly. A number of these folks will end up serving long prison terms. Each year, the Senate fights so hard to have a reluctant National Government devolve more funds to counties for provision of better rural roads, essential drugs & potable water, only for these funds to be stolen with reckless abandon by the same fellows entrusted to manage the funds for the benefit of citizens," said Hon Kindiki.
There have been claims by Kieleweke wing that they are also planning to impeach Deputy president William Ruto, and last week High Court ruling on BBI also opened a door for impeachment of president Uhuru Kenyatta but TangaTanga allies said they are not interested impeaching him.
