Gachaga warns MCAs about the impeachment of Wamatangi

gachagua warns kiambu mcas on wamatangi

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua forewarned Kiambu County Assembly (MCA) members not to remove Governor Kimani Wamatangi from office yesterday.

Gachagua informed the MCAs that impeaching the governor was not a possibility after holding conciliatory discussions with all of the county’s elected officials.

But during the conference, it became clear that members of Parliament with personal grievances against the governor were behind the current deadlock.

Gachagua had called a meeting of Kiambu’s elected leaders to examine the rift with Wamatangi.

During a meeting in his Karen office behind closed doors, Gachagua allegedly told the MCAs, “The issue of impeaching the governor will not help in solving problems of your people and those of the electorates. What you should do at this time is to forge unity and implement your manifestos.”

A portion of MCAs informed Gachagua that the governor and Kimani Ichungw’ah, the Majority Leader of the National Assembly, were at odds, which was the reason for the current disputes in the nation.

Prior to meeting with all 14 MPs, Gachagua had an early meeting with the MCAs.

He had another private meeting with Governor Wamatangi later in the afternoon to discuss his concerns about the other leaders.

The administration of President William Ruto, according to the DP, is concentrated on providing services.

He stressed that attaining the primary objective of devolution—igniting and maintaining development—requires a smooth synergy of cooperation between the county government’s legislative and executive branches.

Additionally, he pushed Wamatangi to support Rosemary Kirika, his deputy, in leading the county.

There are 86 MCAs in the county; 49 of them back Wamatangi, while 16 want him removed.

The unhappy MPs are allegedly helping some of the pro-Wamatangi MCAs pass a motion of impeachment against the Governor, a move that they have sworn to oppose.

The ward representatives vowed that the majority would reject the motion if their colleagues dared to bring it before the County Assembly.
