Senate to convene a special session to discuss Waititu’s fate

Embattled Kiambu Governor, Ferdinand Waititu will soon know his fate when the Senate reconvenes on January 21st to discuss his impeachment motion. This follows the requisite collection of 15 signatures, the number needed to call a special sitting to hear and determine the petition.

Senate majority leader Kipchumba Murkomen through his twitter handle revealed they had the requisite numbers. He added that the Senate will decide whether to hear the petition as a whole house or go the committee route. Should the House form a special committee; the team will table its report in the house in 10 days with recommendations.

The move comes even as Waititu wrote a letter to the Senate, stating that his impeachment was unlawful as there was no quorum during the proceedings.

In the letter addressed to Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka, Waititu said there were only 57 Members of County Assembly present during his impeachment proceedings yet the requisite number is 62.
