Nyangwara disowns letter dropping Kidero impeachment motion
Nairobi Viwandani Ward MCA Samuel Nyangwara has now disowned a letter dropping the impeachment motion against Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero, saying that he did not author the document.
Nyangwara says the motion was blocked by the High Court and he has accused Kidero allied colleagues of forging the letter which states that he has informed Nairobi County Assembly Speaker, Alex Magelo, of his intention to drop the impeachment motion.
Magelo suspended the debate on the motion on Wednesday following a court order obtained by Kidero, barring the county assembly from debating the motion.
Last Tuesday, the session to debate the motion was adjourned after the house failed to raise a quorum of 43 members following a boycott by CORD MCAs and at least 20 Jubilee MCAs leading to the technical hitch.
The Kidero impeachment motion was signed by 56 MCAs, with Nyagwara being the only CORD MCA to sign the motion.
Nyangwara, who recently defected from CORD to Jubilee, accused Kidero of inability to control and manage county debt, which currently stands at Ksh42 billion, unprocedural awarding of revenue collection tenders and abuse of office.
The battle for the removal of Kidero has however been largely perceived as a contest between CORD and Jubilee and 2017 Nairobi Governorship race.
Jubilee has vowed to fight hard in order to win the seat, with Deputy President William Ruto saying their intention is to manage the country and the country’s capital Nairobi.
