- Mwangaza is the first governor to be impeached since the August 9 general elections.
- She has been at loggerheads with MCAs since she took over power.
Homa Bay Town MP Peter Kaluma has said that having a loving and caring husband cannot amount to gross misconduct.
He was responding to the impeachment of Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza.
MCAs voted yes to the impeachment motion tabled by DMK Kiogora Abogeta West MCA and Minority Party Whip.
In a statement on Thursday, Kaluma said that MCAs should stop petty envy against successful women.
"MCAs must stop petty envy against successful women! Having a loving, caring man/family is not and can never amount to gross misconduct," he said.
Kaluma said that men should accept that women too can be leaders.
"What 'gross misconduct' has Governor Kawira Mwangaza committed to deserve this fight by men barely three months after the election! Men must accept that women too can be governors! Senate should dismiss it," he said.
Mwangaza is the first governor to be impeached since the August 9 general elections.
"Honourable members, I wish to declare that the Governor of Meru Bishop Kawira Mwangaza stands impeached by the Meru County Assembly," Speaker Ayub Bundi Solomon said.
Within seven days, Speaker Amason Kingi will be required to convene the house for a sitting to hear Mwangaza's impeachment charges.
On November 30, the Meru court halted the first impeachment attempt by the MCAs.
Justice Wamae Cherere said the motion did not follow the correct procedure in initiating an ouster bid against the governor.
Mwangaza has been at loggerheads with MCAs since she took over power.
