In advance of their battles with their governors, ward representatives received a cold message from a prominent politician in the Rift Valley. According to Narok Senator Ledama ole Kina, he has admitted that MCAs have more powers than Governors, whose primary role is to provide oversight of their respective counties but can be impeached by MCAs.
This is in accordance with the Constitution, which states that MCAs have the authority to initiate impeachment proceedings against their Governors in the event that they fail or violate the law. Ledama has requested that the Maa Community MCAs refrain from extorting their Governors with this.
"An MCA has more powers than a Governor but please don’t blackmail and you Maa Governor’s don’t bribe your MCA’s," read a message from the ODM-based Senator Ledama ole Kina, warning Governors against bribing ward representatives for fear of being shown the door before the Senate takes over the impeachment session.
