Jubilee party outs Kirinyaga County leader of majority as Waiguru's impeachment hots up

The County assembly of Kirinyaga has expressed disappointment after the assembly’s leader of majority James Kamau Murango received a dismissal letter from Jubilee party Secretary General Raphael Tuju.

Jubilee Party, in a letter to the assembly, said the Majority Leader was dismissed after he presented complaints to the Jubilee Headquarter against Kirinyaga Governor Ann Waiguru.

The letter further notes that after complaints, the party found that apart from two issues of disbursement of funds for bursaries and women projects the rest of the issues raised by the MCA were personal.

Murango is also accused of being part of a cohort of mainly independent MCAs who addressed the mass media on notice of motion to impeach Waiguru.

‘It is no longer tenable for you to lead Government business in the county assembly, we find this behaviour of refusing to listen to the party headquarters to be gross misconduct as articulated in artcle 13 of the party constitution’ the letter said

Speaking on Thursday, Wamumu ward MCA John Bapstita Kanga and Tebere ward MCA Gudson Muchina said the Jubilee party has no power to dictate who is supposed to be majority leader in Kirinyaga.

“Even if the party tell us to elect another majority leader we will still elect kamau murango as our majority leader,” Kanga said

Tebere ward MCA accused Kirinyaga Governor Ann Waiguru of using the Jubilee Party to intimidate assembly after a motion to remove her from office was tabled.

On Wednesday Kirinyaga County Assembly through Mutira ward MCA David Kinyua Wangui tabled an impeachment motion against the Kirinyaga Governor Ann Waiguru accusing her of gross violation of the constitution, abuse of office and appointing personal employees to chair the tender evaluation committee in the county.
