Governor Wa Iria in trouble with voter over graft allegations

A Murang’a voter has moved to court to stop the re-election of incumbent Governor, Mwangi Wa Iria, over unresolved corruption allegations.

Jackson Kiroko Ndegwa claims there is real and present danger in allowing Wa Iria to defend his seat regardless of his integrity which is still being questioned.

In a certificate of urgency, Ndegwa claims that the County boss does not meet the Constitutional threshold on Leadership and Integrity under Chapter 6 following the unresolved claims touching on his integrity.

He now wants the court to direct the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to investigate and institute criminal proceedings against the governor for corruption and abuse of office.

The petitioner further wants the court to restrain Wa Iria from contesting and a declaration that it would be unconstitutional for any state organ to clear him.
