Meru governor Kawira Mwangaza survives impeachment

During the hearing of the impeachment motion, Kawira's lawyers argued that the governor was being held to a double standard, particularly in light of the role her husband, Murega Baichu, played in the county.

While being cross-examined, governor Kawira made no apologies for some of the wrongdoings she was being accused of, including appointing members of her family to county positions.

Mwangaza said her husband's appointment as a patron for the youth in Meru county was not motivated by nepotism. His role was to provide moral and financial support, and he was never paid by the county.
