Meru MCAs impeach Governor Kawira Mwangaza.
Meru MCAs have voted to impeach Governor Kawira Mwangaza for the second time, accusing her of violating national and county laws.
The impeachment motion was tabled by the Majority leader Evans Mawira and was supported by 59 out of 69 MCAs. 10 members were absent during the voting on Wednesday, October 25.
Mwangaza’s lawyers, Danstan Omari and Elias Mutuma, argued that the impeachment motion was politically motivated and that the governor had not been given a fair trial. They also argued that the impeachment was illegal because Mwangaza had not been given a chance to defend herself.
