Just a day after the impeachment of Wajir Governor Mohamed Abdi on allegations of embezzlement of health funds among other accusations, Wajir Deputy Governor Ahmed Ali Mukhtar has been sworn in as the new governor of Wajir.

Mohamed Abdi was impeached after 25 senators out of the 47 senators voted for his impeachment. The MCAs of Wajir had accused him of corruption after the county was unable to provide Covid 19 testing services despite offunds being allocated for health. The governor had been accused of other forms of corruption and bad leadership.

Ahmed Ali will take over all the county's operation. He will not be the only or the first Deputy Governor to take over county leadership as this has happened in different counties like Nairobi where Kananu is the governor now.
We hope that his leadership will be for the total service to Wajir residents.
