Chepkwony: MCAs Demanded Bribes From Me
Chepkwony told the Senate Committee probing him that some of the County Assembly members wanted to blackmail him with the impeachment motion
He said on day two of the hearing that the accusations leveled against him were based on pure malice
“I am clean, I was not even among those governors who had been summoned by the Senate for impropriety,” Chepkwony remarked.
Bishop Paul Leleito representing the Kipsigis Council of Elders was today introduced as a witness.
Bishop Leletio defended the ousted governor saying he followed the law and accusations against him were a witchhunt
In their statements, Chepkwony’s lawyers, Peter Wanyama and Joel Buseki told the Senate Committee probing the ouster that the Kericho County Speaker had passed the impeachment motion without giving the governor a fair hearing.
At the same time, the probe team led by Kisii County Senator Chris Obure, has blocked two witnesses from testifying in favour of Chepkwony
One of them is Charles Ngetich, a member of the Kericho County Assembly and a Director of Blue Teck, a United Kingdom based solar company.
The 11-member Senate special committee was established to investigate charges leveled against him by the County Assembly.
The committee is chaired by Senator Chris Obure and is deputized by Kiraitu Murungi.
The committee has ten days to probe the impeachment motion presented by members of the County Assembly.
