Governor Ferdinand Waititu impeached over alleged gross misconduct, corruption and abuse of office.

63 Kiambu county MCAs voted in support of the motion tabled by Ndenderu MCA Solomon Kinuthia who, among other issues, accused the embattled county boss of gross misconduct and abuse of office.

1 MCA voted against the process while 28 were absent, thus, the motion met the required two-thirds majority threshold.

At least two-thirds of the Assembly supported as required by law the impeachment motion. Now the fate of the governor is in the hands of the Senate.

According to the motion, Waititu contravened the public procurement and disposal act by allegedly influencing the award of lucrative tenders to companies associated with his immediate family and close relatives.
