Wamumu MCA John Kanga on Tuesday shaved his hair at the Kirinyaga County Assembly moments after his colleagues voted to impeach Governor Ann Waiguru.

He stated that the act symbolized the end of Waiguru’s era, whom they accused of misusing county resources.

 "I have decided to shave all my hair today, everything including my beard because today we have finally impeached Waiguru.

"I had sworn that I would not shave at all until we finished this job of sending Governor Waiguru home," he stated.

The Kirinyaga County Assembly voted to impeach Waiguru with 23 ward representatives supporting the motion anchored on violation of the Constitution, abuse of office and gross misconduct.

Four MCAs abstained and six of the 33 ward reps were absent.

The County Assembly Speaker Anthony Gathumbi announced the vote to remove Waiguru in the Tuesday session as dissenters were expelled from the House.

“I can confirm that the vote has met the two-thirds requirement to decide on this question,” he said.

The impeachment motion was tabled in the Assembly on March 31 by Mutira Ward Representative David Kinyua Wangui, who said he enjoyed the support of at least 24 MCAs in the 33-member legislature.

The MCAs have accused Waiguru of deliberately failing to submit county plans and policies to the County Assembly for approval.
