Waiguru pulls a Kamlesh on Senate; Delivers a whole 40 cartons of defence




Besieged Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru on Saturday submitted to the Senate bundles of documents in response to the impeachment charges against her.

The county chief beat the Saturday deadline set by the Senate special committee formed to probe the charges.

The documents were stashed in several brown boxes marked ‘Kirinyaga County Government’.


“Today at about 4.20pm, I filed responses to the impeachment motion with substantive responses to each of the allegations levelled against me,” she posted on Facebook.

Lawyer Kamotho Waiganjo, who is also the governor’s spouse, led the legal team that submitted the responses to the Office Clerk of the Senate Saturday, with a promise of battle royale next week.

“We have filed all responses substantive to all the charges levelled against the governor,” he told the media on Saturday, moments after he filed the responses.

He was accompanied by lawyer Paul Nyamodi.

“The responses are contained in 40 cartons and it is unfortunate to the people of Kirinyaga that the matter reached here. We shall let the Senate do its work,” he said. “We look forward to the hearing next week.”

The Senate formed an 11-member special committee, chaired by Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala, to investigate the governor and establish whether the claims against her are valid.

The committee has issued summons Kirinyaga Speaker Anthony Gathumbi to appear before it on Tuesday to shed light on the allegations that led to the impeachment of the governor.

The county assembly will be the first to argue its case when the committee starts its formal sittings on Tuesday.

In a letter dated June 17 addressed to Mr Gathumbi, the committee advised the Speaker that at least three MCAs could accompany him during the proceedings.
