Sifuna: We’ll act morally in Mwangaza’s impeachment trial

Meru residents have been reassured by Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna that the Senate will act morally in impeaching Governor Kawira Mwangaza.

Sifuna said in a statement on Monday that he had reviewed the case’s specifics and that the law and the facts would be taken into consideration while making a decision.

His statements coincide with Mwangaza’s turbulent situation as she prepares to face the Senate for the second time in less than a year.

A procedural motion to reschedule the November 7 and 8 session hours for the purpose of holding hearings on the governor’s potential impeachment and removal from office was approved by senators on Thursday.

Senator Steward Mwadzayo of Kilifi seconded the motion made by majority leader Aaron Cheruiyot, and all members agreed to it.

Senators will now convene for two days, with morning sessions running from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm and afternoon sessions starting at 2:30 pm and ending at the close of business.

Members rejected a move by Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina, and on Tuesday it was decided to hold the hearing in plenary.

Ole Kina supported the committee’s investigation into the governor’s alleged impeachment.

59 MCAs supported the impeachment motion, which resulted in the governor’s impeachment last Wednesday.

Mwangaza is facing multiple accusations that if proven true, the Senate will vote to remove her from office and confirm her impeachment.

The governor is charged with misappropriation and misuse of public resources in the first instance.

She is also charged with providing high-ranking officers with salary and benefits without providing any services to the county.

The Assembly accused the governor of representing unfit relatives as qualified technical staff for the examination of medical equipment in China, leading to yet another accusation of nepotism and unethical behavior.

The third claim, which is that she bullied, denigrated, and humiliated other county officials due to her deputy’s issues, is submitted as proof.

The governor is charged with usurping legislative authority and making unlawful appointments on the fourth count.

She is also charged with unlawfully designating a public road in her husband’s honor, contempt of the County Assembly, and contempt of court.
