Kawira Mwangaza Has Last Laugh as Senate Dismisses Impeachment

Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza can now heave a sigh of relief after the Senate overturned the Meru County Assembly unanimous decision to impeach her

The Select Committee that had been tasked to investigate the county boss agreed that none of the allegations leveled against her met the threshold.

Senate Majority Whip Boni Khalwale, who chaired the committee, told the House that the MCAs could not substantiate any of the four allegations they made against Kawira.

As a result, the committee exonerated the governor.

Some of the allegations included nepotism, disrespecting county leaders and gross misconduct.

As Khalwale was making his presentation, Kawira sat pensively, but when she was cleared, she teared up in joy.

Since the committee did not find fault to all the allegations, the matter was put to rest.

The whole House would have voted only if the committee recommended her impeachment or had found her guilty of any of the allegations.

Kawira was voted out by all the MCAs save for one who was in the assembly.
