Governor Mwangaza relieved after court suspends her impeachment motion.

An impeachment motion against Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza has been put on hold by the Meru High Court.

Justice Wamae Cherere ruled on Wednesday, November 30, that the Meru County Assembly did not initiate the motion in a correct manner.

Last Monday, Mwangaza filed a legal petition asking the court to prohibit the County Assembly from discussing her impeachment action.

The Governor claimed, via her attorney Elias Mutuma, that a member of the assembly acting as the clerk called and signed the publication of the impeachment motion.

She also stated in court that the fact that 68 out of 69 MCAs supported the motion for impeachment demonstrated that the assembly had a fixed viewpoint on the matter.

On November 21, Abogeta West MCA Dennis Kiogora—who also serves as the Minority Chief Whip—introduced the impeachment motion.
