The Nyandarua County Assembly drama began on Saturday as members voted to impeach their Speaker, Ndegwa Wahome, for the third time in less than six months.
MCAs accuse the speaker of abusing his role, militarizing the legislature, disobeying the constitution, victimizing assembly employees, impunity, coercion, weak leadership, nepotism, and unconstitutional workers recruitment.
Leader of the Majority, Edinald King’ori, proposed the impeachment motion, which was seconded by Wanjohi ward Rep, Isaac Kung’u. Wahome was also accused by King’ori of weakening Governor Francis Kimemia’s leadership.
31 MCAs voted in favor of the resolution, six against it, and one abstention.
