I urge all the Meru MCAs to go back and do the necessary - CS Linturi.

Meru governor Kawira Mwangaza is slated to face yet another political storm after surviving an impeachment in late 2022.

After making up with the members of the County Assembly who accused her of abusing her office among other maladministration, Kawira is now facing off with some quarters who wield influence beyond the county.

This time, calling for her ouster is Agriculture and Livestock Development Cabinet Secretary Mithika Linturi.

Compounding things for the governor is the feud between her and her deputy Isaac Mutuma.

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua had offered to intervene and broker a truce between the two members of the Meru county executive.

Differing with the deputy president, Linturi, who has been identified as Meru political kingpin, suggested there were underlying matters that ought to be solved only through Mwangaza's ouster.

Meru governor Kawira Mwangaza could be warming up for another impeachment.

According to the CS, Meru constituents have resolved not to have Mwangaza as their county boss.

He exuded optimism that Gachagua would respect the people's wish and hence shun any reconciliatory efforts.

"Meru is bigger than the Deputy President. I don't think DP Rigathi Gachagua can fail to listen to what the Meru people are saying. Meru is simply saying Kawira must Go. I urge all the Meru MCAs to go back and do the necessary. We're entirely embarrassed! It's a matter of when and not if," he said.

In December 2022, Mwangaza was saved by committee of the Senate which threw out the allegations that the Meru MCAs based their move to impeach her on.
