  • The Speaker was accused of gross misconduct. He had previously been accused of abuse of office, nepotism and corruption.

Nyandarua County Speaker Ndegwa Wahome has been impeached for the third time.

Members of the county assembly cited gross misconduct as they voted 31 - 6 in favour of the impeachment.

In February 2021 26 MCAs voted to oust the Speaker while 4 voted against the motion. Wahome dismissed the impeachment while speaking to the media.

Last year in December the Speaker faced the MCAs and survived the first impeachment motion after he sought the court's intervention to stop the move.

The High Court in Nakuru reinstated Wahome after his impeachment until a case he had filed against his removal was heard and determined.

During the impeachment, the MCAs accused Wahome of abuse of office, nepotism, and corruption.

Barely a week ago Wahome alleged that his life was being threatened by a senior politician in Nyandarua.

“The plan to make me disappear without a trace has been hatched after a bid to remove me from the Speaker’s seat through impeachment proved impossible,” Wahome said.

“I want to sit down with the DCI George Kinoti himself so that I can give him the inside information that I have about my planned assassination,” he continued.
