Tuesday October 15, 2019-Taita Taveta county leaders have revealed the person who planned the impeachment of their governor, Granton Samboja.
Last week, Taita Taveta MCAs impeached the governor but hours later High Court suspended the impeachment until the case is heard and determined.
The leaders have alleged that Deputy President William Ruto organised secret meetings in Mombasa and Nairobi to push for the impeachment of the first time county boss.
Led by Taita Taveta ODM elections coordinator Thomas Jumwa, the leaders said that the DP pushed for Samboja’s ouster from office.
Jumwa said that they are aware that the Members of the County Assembly met Ruto several times before the impeachment.
He also said that the push for the removal of the governor from office will not materialise, adding that he is ready to fight back.
“We are aware that the DP met the MCAs twice and they also met some of his supporters in Nairobi and Mombasa,” Jumwa said.
