Meru Governor, Kawira Mwangaza, has been facing a hard time just a few months after she took over the office from Kiraitu Murungi. The Governor has been in frequentl confrontations with the MCAs after they accused her of arrogance and also nepotism following the appointment of her close family members to county positions. Kawira is said to be running the affairs of the county alongside her husband, Murega Baichu.
A few days ago, MCAs initiated Kawira's impeachment where a majority voted to impeach the governor with only one MCA opposing the move. The county legislators cited gross misconduct and incompetence as the main reasons of impeaching the governor.
On Wednesday, the Governor received a sigh of relief after the court stopped the county assembly from proceeding with the impeachment process arguing that the MCAs were going against the rights of the Governor. Mwangaza proceeded to give a dramatic apology, and pleaded for forgiveness from the county members where she said sorry for seventy times.
Despite all this, the governor is not yet off the hook after the county lawmakers rejected the apology by Mwangaza. Speaking during the Wednesday session, the MCAs said that the process of impeaching Mwangaza must go on despite the ruling by the court
According to the speaker of the Meru county assembly, Hon Ayub Bundi, the ruling of the court did not restrict the assembly from initiating a fresh impeachment process. He added that the assembly will not tire, stating that they will impeach her afresh.
"We have followed the court ruling and it does not in anyway restrict the assembly from starting another impeachment. What we have started must come to an end," alluded speaker Bundi.
"Kawira can go to courts even a hundred times if she wishes, but the reality remains that she must go home. We must make sure that Meru gets the right leadership," said one of the MCAs.
