MCAs deny plans to impeach Busia Governor

Members of the County Assembly have denied any plans to impeach Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong terming it a creation of the media.

Speaking at St Paul’s Anglican Church of Kenya Machakus during a funds drive in aid of the church’s completion on Sunday, the MCAs pledged to work with the Governor to realize the dreams of county residents.

Assembly Majority Leader Laban Mukhwana, Deputy Speaker Lawrence Okaale and Amukura East MCA Moses Echopat said those spreading propaganda will be doomed to fail.

Okaale said there is no meeting they had planned to impeach the Governor, adding that those spreading such falsehood want to satisfy their personal ego.

“H.E the Governor we are behind you in your bid to leave a legacy. Those trying to create a rift between us will be shamed in Jesus name,” he said.

Mukhwana said the four point memorandum they presented to the Governor in Kisumu last week did not mention of any impeachment plans, adding that they are behind the Governor in realizing the socio-economic development of the county.

Echopat blamed the media for sparking off the impeachment debate, well aware that it was a figment of their imagination.

The Governor said the impeachment plans were not contained in the memorandum presented to him and wondered the intention of those who kicked off the rumour.

“Even if there were such plans it is not easy as some would think. The MCAs may move a motion to impeach me but I will bounce back in Nairobi either through the Senate or courts of law,” he said.
