Meru governor survives second impeachment attempt

Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza has once again escaped impeachment after the majority of Senators voted against the seven charges brought against her by the county assembly.

Following the vote, Speaker Amason Kingi declared, “The result of the division indicate that the Senate has not upheld any of the impeachment charges… The Senate has failed to remove from office by impeachment Governor Kawira Mwangaza and the Governor accordingly continues to hold office.”

This marks the second time Governor Mwangaza has faced a bid for her removal from office, and the second time she has come out unscathed. It remains to be seen what the next steps will be for both the Governor and the county assembly.
