Will Ann Waiguru survive the impeachment?

@Arisnews 06/25/2020

Kenyans have been treated to the circus in Kirinyaga County as the MCA’s vowed to kick out Ann Waiguru as the governor. The MCA’s passed a motion to impeach her citing abuse of office and gross violation of the law. The debate in the county assembly was however not devoid of chaotic scenes.

This is not the first time that the Kirinyaga governor is getting into trouble. She resigned from cabinet in the year 2015 after being linked to the National Youth Service (NYS) scandal. Her bravery made her to seek the governorship position in Kirinyaga County defeating her closest rival Martha Karua.

An 11 member senate committee led by Kakamega senator Cleophas Malala has held its sittings this week. The senate sessions have been very lively with the defense team of Waiguru led by the husband Kamotho Waiganjo being put on the spot by the Kirinyaga county assembly lawyer Ndegwa Njiru. On the first day of the sittings the governor was captured enjoying a game of Solitaire to the amusement of many Kenyans. A report is to be tabled this Friday 26th June 2020 where a plenary session is expected to be held to discuss the report. Elgeyo Marakwet senator Kipchumba Murkomen has sensationally continously claimed that Waiguru will be cleansed by the committee hence the people of Kirinyaga will not get justice.  This is in line with the fact that she is perceived to be close to opposition leader Raila Odinga and Waiguru herself claiming she is being sacrificed because of her stand on the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).  It remains to be seen how Waiguru will survive this.
