It is on a lovely Thursday and the fate of Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza seems to be fast dwindling after county MCAs went for her neck again for a second time in a span of one year.
A total of 59 MCAs, all of whom were at the Assembly, out of the total 69 voted in support of the impeachment motion.
Attempts by Governor Mwangaza’s defence team to absolve her from blame fell flat as the MCAs went on to eject her from office.
However, after MCAs appended their impeachment signatures, most women leaders from across the country came out strongly in defence of Kawira.
Led by Nakuru and Kirinyaga Governors Susan Kihika and Anne Waiguru respectively, the women leaders defended Kawira, terming her impeachment as a political witchhunt for women in leadership positions.
Do you think the MCAs were justified in impeaching Mwangaza?
