- Kuria said the Mt Kenya region has become notorious for calling for impeachments.
- He said it started in the last electoral cycle when Kiambu successfully impeached Governor Ferdinand Waititu.
Trade CS Moses Kuria has once again aired his two cents on the recent impeachment threats on governors by Mt Kenya region MCAs.
Taking to X, Kuria said the Mt Kenya region has become notorious for calling for impeachments.
He said it started in the last electoral cycle when Kiambu successfully impeached Governor Ferdinand Waititu.
The CS said in the current cycle, Meru County made the first attempt at impeaching the governor but she survived. He however maintained that the county is still determined to see its governor ousted.
"In the last term, Kiambu County from Mt Kenya region made history by becoming the first county to successfully impeach a Governor. In this term Meru County In Mt Kenya region is determined to become the first County to successfully impeach the Governor," Kuria said.
Kuria said that unless impeachments solely depend on a region's climatic conditions, it is time they let others also do it.
He joked that this would be, in the spirit of "inclusivity and diversity".
"Unless impeachment has something to do with the soils, altitude or climatic conditions, it is necessary for Mt Kenya region to give other regions an opportunity to impeach their Governors in the spirit of inclusivity, diversity and national cohesion. My two Cents," the CS said.
His sentiments can be interpreted as the CS sending a message to Members of the County Assembly from the Mt Kenya region to go slow on the impeachments.
It can also be interpreted as Kuria telling them to borrow from the other regions in the country on matters of leadership.
His remarks come a few days after at least 33 MCAs from the Meru County Assembly vowed to support the impeachment motion against Governor Kawira Mwangaza.
Mwangaza is now staring at the risk of being impeached for the second time in just 10 months after 61 out of the county's 69 MCAs expressed support for the ouster bid.
The ward representatives include 27 from President William Ruto's UDA party, 21 from the Devolution Empowerment Party, 10 from Jubilee and three from the National Ordinary Peoples Empowerment Union.
The impeachment motion is being crafted and will be tabled in the assembly soon.
Prior to his remarks, Kuria had asked the governor to put her house in order before it became too late.
He said that the days of fighting are long gone and that leaders should consider uniting to work for Kenyans.
"Reduce the fights, if I was able to reduce them, you will also be able to do it. I have given you one week to count and reduce them by 50 per cent. You should not fight with everyone and avoid uniting your enemies."
