Reports indicate that 2 MCAs Simon Kiambi of Kiagu Ward and John Kithinji of Nkomo Ward, did not Participate in the Voting process since they were absent.
“The members that have voted are 67; two members are absent. At this juncture, we have 67 ayes and zero nays. Governor Kawira Mwangaza stands impeached by the Meru County Assembly,” the house’s speaker said after the votes were tallied.
The Governor’s chance now lies with the Senate which is expected to uphold or overturn the impeachment.
