Kitui County Assembly Majority Leader Peter Mwikya Kilonza alias ‘Tangawizi’ says his life is in danger over the Governor Charity Ngilu impeachment motion.
Kilonza, who is the Athi MCA, told reporters outside the assembly building in Kitui Town last evening that he had received reports that there was a plot to arrest and take him to a Covid-19 quarantine centre.
He said he was aware that he had been identified as one of the close contacts of the two Covid-19 patients diagnosed from a Kitui hotel last week.
He alleged a plot to derail the impeachment motion.
“I am aware that I am in the contact list of the Kyalilini Hotel staff, who tested positive for Covid-19. I want to tell those behind the scheme that I am ready. But it is not a must that I move the motion, which is already in the county assembly.
“I have been tested for Covid-19 and I am free from the virus, and have a certificate. But even if they succeed, I will go and I will still be back after 14 days to continue with what I started,” he vowed.
The governor was given seven days to file her defence against corruption and abuse of office allegations.
The impeachment motion was presented to County Assembly Speaker George Ndoto on Friday, but the debate has since been suspended following a High Court on a petition filed by Governor Ngilu’s lawyers.
