Tharaka Nithi Deputy Speaker Impeached Over Foul Language
Marimanti Ward Member of the County Assembly(MCA) Susan Ngugi was impeached on Tuesday as the deputy speaker for Tharaka Nithi.
The MCA was accused of using foul language, walking out during the bursary committee among other things.
She allegedly stormed out of the chambers on December 12, 2018, as the list of assembly business committee nominees was being tabled.
The impeached deputy speaker had also been accused of leaking a discussion of house business committee to the public.
Ms Ngugi dismissed the allegations while speaking to journalists claiming the executive wanted her impeached due to her firm stand against corruption.
“I am surprised that an impeachment motion against me has emerged three days after the sittings,” he stated.
A motion tabled in the house saw 16 members support her ouster while two voted to save her.
The 16 who supported this motion are; Muthini Karani (nominated), Njeri Kigwari (Igambang’ombe), Justin Kithinji (Magumoni), Njagi Murandi (Ciakariga), Dennis Mutwiri (Mugwe), Mutegi Rugia (Gatunga), Karen Karimi (nominated), Charles Nyaga (Mitheru).
Others are; Leonard Gitonga(Nkondi), Peterson Mwirigi(Ganga), Mwenda Gataya (Mukothima) and Margret Gitari (Chogoria), Anita Karimi (nominated), Wilson Nyaga Muisraeli (Muthambi) and Assumpta Mukwanjeru (nominated).
The two who opposed are; Millicent Mugana (nominated) and Jones Kinegeni (Mwimbi).
Erastus Kinyua Mbogori was absent during the vote.
