Just hours after the Auditor General Nancy Gathungu flagged the expenditure of over Ksh2.1 billion by Baringo County in the financial year 2018/2019, a section of Kanu allied county legislators have come out to call for impeachment of Governor Sternly Kiptis.
Speaking on Wednesday at Kabarnet town in Baringo county, Kabarnet Ward MCA Ernest Kibet, made an appeal to the residents of Baringo to initiate an impeachment petition against Governor Stanley Kiptis.
According to Kibet, the governor has failed to do his job as the county boss, adding that Jubilee allied MCAs have turned a deaf ear on the report, hence the locals should initiate the impeachment process.
"The governor should be impeached for not doing his job. I am calling upon the public...if the MCAs have refused to impeach this governor, you can do a petition as private members. We cannot allow an individual to assume that he can be there till 2022," stated MCA Kibet.
The Gideon Moi allied MCA said the people of Baringo should rise up and refuse to allow the governor misuse them until 2022. adding that that they cannot allow him to provide bad leadership when they are in need of services.
The MCA, who was elected on an independent ticket, has been so vocal against Deputy President William Ruto's 2022 presidential bid and has instead, chosen to side with the county's Senator Gideon Moi.
He recently led a section of Kanu MCAs from the county in advocating for the passage of BBI bill, something that caused a heated discussion in the county assembly chambers, leading to multiple fracas between him and the Ruto allied MCAs who rejected the bill.
Governor Kiptis, who is one of William Ruto;'s loyalists from the North Rift region, found himself on the receiving end after the latest audit report revealed that the county operates over 192 bank accounts, that could have been used in the misuse of the Sh2.1 billion funds.
