Embattled Kiambu governor Ferdinand Waititu is reportedly fighting depression following his impeachment by the senate last night.
A close confidant to the governor has hinted that since his impeachment by county assembly of Kiambu his lifestyle changed.
“The governor has been having a hard life,friends have run away from him they are now trying to be-friend Nyoro who is in acting capacity,he is a stressed man,financially he isn’t doing well but we are hoping he will adopt to the new life,” he states.
On Wednesday 29th January,the Senate voted to kick out Mr Ferdinand Waititu as Kiambu County governor in a motion that had all the hallmarks of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto duel.
There was a total of 38 senators in the House on Wednesday. Some 28 senators, most of them from opposition coalition Nasa, convicted the governor on all three counts levelled against him by the county assembly and voted to remove him from office.
The governor was accused of disregarding the County Assembly as an arm of the county government and undermining its three cardinal roles of legislation, oversight and representation through systematic non-remittance of requisitioned funds in the 2018/19 financial year.
The governor has now moved to court to block the swearing in of his Deputy James Nyoro as the New governor.
In a statement Thursday morning, the Judiciary indicated that Justice John Onyiego will preside over the scheduled swearing-in.
“High Court Judge Onyiego will today, January 30, preside over the swearing-in ceremony of the new Kiambu Governor James Nyoro,” the Judiciary said in a statement.
