The Council of Governors chaired by Martin Wambora has sworn to stand by the former Wajir Governor Mr.Mohamed. While addressing the press today they said that the Senate ignored the exonerating evidence on health captured in the National Survey Report on Health released on May 2019. The motion to impeach the former Wajir Governor Mohamed Abdi Mohamud was supported by 25 Senators.
The Council of Governors added that the move by the Senate lowered the standards of proof and impeachment matters hence exposing the Counties to political violence. It further says that the Senate disobeyed the court orders that prohibited both the County Assembly and Senate from discussing the impeachment motion.
Former Wajir Governor was impeached on the basis of Gross violation of the constitution, violating Public Finance Management Act, Asset Disposal Act, County Government Act, Public Procurement Act. His deputy Ahmed Ali Muktar was sworn on Tuesday as the third governor. The Council of Governor says they will meet on Friday to shed more light on what's next for Mr.Mohamed.
