Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale is leading the Senate Committee mandated with hearing the impeachment proceedings against Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza.
The Senate announced yesterday that the proceedings will start today morning at the Senate chambers.
“The Special Committee established by the Senate to hear charges on the proposed removal from office by impeachment of Governor Kawira Mwangaza by the Meru County Assembly will have its first sitting on Tuesday, December 27, 2022 in the Senate Chamber. The hearing will start at 8 am,” a part of the statement indicated.
The committee, which was established after 33 Senators voted in its favor last week, is expected to discuss rules and procedures of determining the case as well as consider any preliminary issues.
It was established on Tuesday last week after 33 Senators voted in favor of a special committee process against two who were for the whole House.
Meru MCAs impeached Governor Mwangaza on grounds of nepotism, illegal appointments, unlawful dismissal of the constitution and statutory functions of county organs.
Out of 69 MCAs, 68 voted to impeach the governor on December 14th.
Mwangaza accused MCAs of running a cartel at the assembly, blackmail, greed, corruption, intimidation and organizing a violent demonstration at the Assembly and violating public finance laws.
