Senate to hold special sitting to deliberate Governor Waititu impeachment


The Senate will hold a special sitting on Monday, January 21, 2020 to deliberate the impeachment of embattled Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu.

Speaking during a press conference Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen said the impeachment occurred during recess hence the house couldn’t look into the issue.

Murkomen added that a decision will also be made on whether a special committee will be formed to listen to the impeachment or if the whole House will be involved in the process.

“Since we were on recess we agreed that we will revisit as soon as we finish the holiday…I have received 15 signatures required to convene a special sitting,” he said.

“The House has been notified that we shall have a special sitting on 21st this month to consider the impeachment of the Kiambu Governor.”

Ndenderu MCA Solomon Kinuthia, accused the county boss of contravening the public procurement and disposal act by allegedly influencing the award of lucrative tenders to companies associated with his immediate family and close relatives.

Kinuthia also alleged that Waititu hired over 600 casuals without the involvement of the County Public Service Board.
