Murang’a Governor tells off Gitura over ouster

By George Kithuka

Muranga governor Mwangi Wa Iria has told off senate deputy speaker Kembi Gitura on his allegations that the senate erred in rejecting Wa Iria’s impeachment.

Governor Wa Iria who survived a move by Muranga county assembly to impeach him after the senate cleared him, castigated his senator Gitura for alleging that senate was not keen in investigating Wa Iria’s conduct as recommended by the county assembly and that the impeachment motion needs to be reviewed.

An irate Wa Iria who was speaking at a function in Ihura in his Muranga county urged Gitura to move to court if he has tangible corruption evidence against him.

Elsewhere, the process of replacing former Malindi Member of parliament Dan Kazungu who joined the executive as cabinet secretary has kicked off in earnest as Kaya elders embarked on vetting of over 10 aspirants.

A panel of 20 elders vetted the aspirants on issues ranging from land, marginalization, historical injustices to their strategy on the use of resources available in the constituency to transform the lives of the people.

The immediate former MP Dan Kazungu was recently appointed to the cabinet. A by-election is scheduled for March 7th 2016.
