Embu Governor Martin Wambora yesterday addressed the county assembly for the first time in over four years.

There was bad blood between him and the first assembly. Wambora never officially opened the assembly in the four years of its term nor address it.

His State of the County address would be delivered at Kangaru Girls’ High School. The assembly passed votes of no-confidence against him.

Last Tuesday he visited the assembly for the first time to witness the election of Josiah Thiriku as speaker.

Thiriku was elected unopposed after former speaker Kariuki Mate and 12 others dropped out of the race. Wambora proposed and vigorously lobbied for his election.

Yesterday Wambora urged cooperation and mutual consultation between the executive and the assembly.
