After Mwangaza, Another Top Governor Now Receives Threats of Being Impeached

Kisii Governor Honourable Simba Arati, has now told off a section of Members of Parliament from Kisii who are threatening to table an impeachment motion against him.

The ODM Governor, who was speaking to the media on Saturday, said that the impeachment threats is due to his close ties with President William Ruto whom they share different political sides.

However, reacting to the incident, Arati said that he won't be cowed by MPs as he asked them to stick to their mandate. He said that the only organs charged with keeping tabs on governors are the county assemblies and the Senate.

"It is ridiculous when I see some of them say 'we have given you two months and if you do not perform'. What will they do? Their job is cut out clearly in the constitution," exclaimed Arati.

He further stated that his new roles requires him to work with the national government for efficient service delivery to his people.

"Our relationship with the president is vertical and the courts pronounced themselves on the elections. Ruto is the president and we have no option. Those who felt very bad to see me with the president cannot wish this relationship away. But let it be clear, Raila Odinga remains my party leader in Azimio," he added.
