The Senate has on Wednesday ousted Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu from his seat.
The decision was reached among the Senators during a vote in the house.
Three charges leveled against Governor Ferdinand Waititu lead to his dismissal and they included gross misconduct and abuse of office, violation of the constitution and Public Finance Management Act.
- Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu impeached
- Defiant Waititu to construct another office to serve Kiambu residents
24 votes were the minimum number required to send packing the Kiambu leader as 28 voted in the second and 27 in the second charge.
All along the Kiambu Governor has been accused of awarding his close family members tenders of the county.
He was also accused of hiring about 600 county employees contrary to County Public Service Board approval and later on dismissing them.
His actions have been questioned especially on loss of funds meant for development projects in his backyard.
At one point Waititu was accused of misleading a widow into disposing off her land which he later purchased for his second wife.
In return, she promised the widow to award some county favors.
Defending himself from all the allegations, he termed his impeachment by the MCA as unfair as the number of those present did not meet the required threshold.
The December 19th events saw him defending himself once again saying there is no substantial evidence proving he profited from the tenders.
