President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto have been forced to intervene to save a popular Ford Kenya Party Governor from being impeached from office, reports indicate.
As The Nation reports, a late intervention by the head of state and his deputy and leaders allied to them saved Bungoma county governor Wycliffe Wangamati from being impeached by the Members of the county assembly who had obtained 45 signatures, ready to pounce and impeach the first time governor who has fallen out with Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetang'ula.
It is reported that Mt Elgon member of the national assembly Fred Kapondi who is strongly allied to deputy president William Ruto and other top Jubilee party leaders thought to be the president himself - either personally or through representatives - made an intervention and stopped the MCAs from proceeding with their plan.
"You see we don’t make our individual decisions, but the party leadership guides us. It is true that we withdrew after consultations with the party," Kabula ward MCA Vitalis Wangila revealed.
His Mbakalu ward counterpart Bethwel Mwambu revealed that they were called by top most Party leaders whom he refused to mention only suggesting their seniority.
