“It is against this background that Fida-Kenya is extremely concerned by the ongoing attacks towards you as the Governor of Meru County. In particular, we note that since your successful election in August 2022, you have faced two impeachments by MCAs,” she said.
They include Nyeri Woman Representative Rahab Mukami, Githunguri MP Gathoni Wamuchomba, Suba North MP Millie Odhiambo and Narok Woman Representative Rebecca Tonkei.
She said they had hope that the senators will deliver a just outcome.
Senators approved on Thursday a procedural motion to alter the hours of sittings for November 7 and 8 to conduct the hearings on the proposed removal from office by impeachment of the governor.
The motion by majority leader Aaron Cheruiyot was seconded by Kilifi senator Steward Mwadzayo and unanimously approved by the members.
“THAT, notwithstanding the resolutions of the Senate made on February 16, 2023, and on March 29, 2023, pursuant to Standing Order 32 on the approval of the Senate Calendar (Regular Sessions) for the Second Session, 2023 and pursuant to Standing Order 34 (4) (b), the Senate resolves to alter its hours of meeting on Tuesday, 7th November 2023 and Wednesday, 8th November, 2023,” read the motion.
Senators will now meet from 9:00 am to 1.00 pm for the morning sittings and at 2:30 pm until the close of business for the afternoon sittings in the two days.
The decision to conduct the hearing on plenary was arrived at Tuesday after members rejected a motion by Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina.
