Kirinyaga MCAs plot to dissolve Kirinyaga County government

Kirinyaga MCAs have taken their desire to get rid of Waiguru further as they are now collecting signatures to dissolve the county government.

With County Majority Leader, Mr Murango, at the fore, the Members of County Assembly governing the county had become hard. Thus, the need to dissolve the county government.

Waiguru saved by Senate

The move to want to disband the county government comes just a few weeks after the impeachment of Waiguru failed at the Senate Committee.

Having passed a motion of impeachment against the governor, Kirinyaga MCAs then awaited the judgement of the Senate Committee to complete the process. However, the Senate exonerated the embattled Kirinyaga governor.

Collecting signatures

But now, Mr Murango said that they had started to collect signatures from Kirinyaga residents to send Waiguru home.

“We want to collect more than 30,000 signatures to dissolve the government. The process has started and there will be no retreat.” Mr Murango told the Daily Nation.

Governor Ann Waiguru, on her part, had sought refuge from the Senate, the Controller of Budget and the Jubilee leaders as the assault come in thick and fast.

Waiguru fights back

She accused the MCAs of planning to sabotage her government by reducing the county government budget. The move would cripple any functions of the county government.

Waiguru also fought back against the Kirinyaga MCAs by accusing them of misappropriating sh 300 million meant for health workers. In her statement, she said that the MCAs had, instead, used the monies to fund the building of ward hospitals.

Dr Mathenge, Budget committee chairman, however, said that they still had the monies for health workers and that the governor was misleading the public.

But the back and forth has left Kirinyaga residents suffering. Revelations by Dr Gor Goody that county hospitals were running down before the senate highlighted the dire situation in the county.
