Court Stop Impeachment Motion Against Governor Kawira Mwangaza

Reading Time: 1 minute

Kenyan High Court has barred Meru's Members of the County Assembly (MCAs) from debating on an impeachment motion against Governor Kawira Mwangaza.

In a ruling delivered on Wednesday, Justice Thripsisa Cherere said the MCAs did not follow the law when initiating the motion.

"Under the powers donated to this court by Article 23(3) of the Constitution, it is therefore hereby ordered that the impeachment motion dated November 21, 2022, by members of the first respondent scheduled for debate on November 30, 2022, at 10 am is flawed and is quashed," Justice Cherere ruled.

The first time Governor moved to court seeking orders to stop the ward representatives from debating her impeachment motions.

On November 22, the Meru County Assembly tabled a motion to impeach Governor Mwangaza.

The motion was tabled by Denis Kiogora and was supported by 68 out of the total 69 MCAs in the assembly by appending their signatures.
Governor Mwangaza is accused of nepotism, illegal appointments, unlawful dismissals, usurpation of county organ constitutional and statutory functions, contempt of court, incitement, bullying, vilification, and misleading campaigns against other leaders.
