Benane Ward MCA Abdi Mohamed Sheikh has filed impeachment notice against Wajir Governor Mohamed Abdi Muhamed.
The MCA accuses the county boss of wanton corruption, gross-misconduct and abuse of office.
In 2019, the Governor was on the limelight after the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) froze accounts claimed to belong his nephew in a corruption purge.
According to EACC, a graft case involving family members at the county conspired to defraud Ksh.26 million in purchase of two luxury vehicles for the county but instead, only one second-hand vehicle was purchased at an inflated price and a balance of Ksh.12 million was allegedly diverted to a spouse’s account for unknown reasons.
According to EACC, Yasmin is the wife of Osman Abdi Jimale, an alleged nephew of Wajir Governor Mohammed Abdi, with the trio allegedly forming a ring to fleece the county Ksh.26 million.
EACC claims the money had not been budgeted for in the county’s 2017/2018 financial year, but on July 2, 2018 Ksh. 26 million was paid to Daayo for the purchase of two vehicles for the county government.
