The embattled Governor of Nyeri County has been impeached.
This follows an impeachment motion this afternoon at the county assembly where 32 out of 46 MCAs voted in favour of his impeachment. The impeachment motion was as a result of budget stalemate occasioned by corruption allegations and failure of the county to account for Sh. 351M allocated in the 2015/16 budegt.
This comes after several previous attempts to impeach him have failed. The governor is said to have fallen out of favour with the MCAs and attempts to reconcile them have hit a snag.
