MCA shaves off hair to celebrate Waiguru’s impeachment
By Vincent Kejitan | June 10th 2020
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.
