After the Senate impeached the graft alleged governor Ferdinand Waititu, acting Kiambu Governor James Nyoro was already celebrating with friends and planning the oath-taking ceremony.

The swearing-in of James Nyoro to take over as the new Kiambu Governor after the impeachment of Ferdinand Waititu has been suspended over legal objections.

Hundreds of Nyoro’s supporters and leaders had flocked at the County Headquarters, where he was ready to take an oath, only for the Judiciary to postpone the exercise, prompting protests from locals.

The exercise was postponed after legal experts questioned the legality of the swearing-in before the expiry of 10 days as required by law, to enable any dissatisfied party to lodge a challenge in court.

Waititu is already seeking orders to overturn the Senate decision to uphold a motion by the Kiambu MCAs who voted to send him home last year.
