    Meru MCAs approve a motion to impeach Governor Kawira Mwangaza.

    Published on

    The Meru County Assembly voted to impeach Governor Kawira Mwangaza on Tuesday, November 22.

    68 of the 69 MCAs present voted in favor of the proposal put up by Denis Kiogora, MCA for Abogeta West Ward, with support coming from both the minority and majority sides.

    Representatives have accused Mwangaza of many offenses, including violating the Constitution and disobeying laws in her administration of county government.

    The governor has also been accused of hiring family members and fostering a hostile atmosphere in the county, all of which call into doubt her effectiveness and dependability as the leader of Meru (CEO).

    Her spouse, Murega Baichu, was appointed to the positions of Youth Patron and Hustlers’ Ambassador, which has been deemed to be unconstitutional.
    Assembly minority whip Dennis Kiogora said that her dismissal is necessary because of the negative impact on growth caused by the lack of cooperation between the executive and legislative branches of government.

    Since Mwangaza’s rise to power in August 2022, there has been a constant tussle between him and the MCAs, culminating in the impeachment motion.

    Just one month into her term, Mwangaza found herself in the middle of a dispute with the county legislature.

    The MCAs said the county administrator broke her word by not contributing to the Ward Development Fund.

    The governor, however, maintained his position that it was impossible to comply with their requests since the establishment of the fund was not based on any legislation.
    Political authorities in the county, headed by Senator Kathuri Murungi, attempted to mediate as tensions rose, but they ultimately failed.
