Nyandarua County Assembly
once again tabled a Notice of Motion for Impeachment of Speaker Wahome Ndegwa, in a tense filled House attracting government and other human rights observers.
This is after a Nakuru court late last month annulled Wahome’s last ‘impeachment’ terming it as un-procedural.
The House business was severally interrupted by Point of Orders from MCAs who wanted Mr Wahome to recuse himself before the Notice was tabled.
But Mr Wahome stood his ground that he was still the Speaker as ordered by the court, and will continue playing and performing his responsibilities both in and out of the House as the Speaker.
Wahome later paved way for the deputy speaker Zakary Njeru to receive the notice of motion on his impeachment before he later resumed sitting.
The House Business Committee had declined to include any other Business in the day’s paper until the Notice is tabled.
After tabling, the Deputy Speaker directed the Business Committee holds a brief meeting to discuss and provide the calendar of the Assembly.
The House Business Committee approved the Notice Paper for the week clearing the way for the debate of the impeachment Motion by the House of Wednesday morning, a process expected to end with the voting on same day.
In the Notice, the Mover and Majority Leader King’ori Wambugu accused the Speaker of corruption and unethical practices through nepotism by employing at least three members of his immediate family.
He is also accused of appointing Ms Nancy Njoki Muriithi who worked with Mr Wahome Ndegwa and Company Advocates law firm without the Speaker declaring his interest during the appointment to the County Assembly Public Service Board.
He is also accused of influencing the tendering of the hire of his vehicle to the assembly at an inflated cost of Sh12, 000 in a day against the vehicle capacity which stood at Sh3, 000 in a day.
Mr Wahome is also accused of illegally paying himself Sh606, 000 in allowances and appointing himself a signatory to bank accounts where colossal amounts of money were irregularly withdrawn.
