The Uasin Gishu County Governor may soon find himself jobless after some members of Uasin Gishu County Assembly resolved to start impeachment proceedings against him.
Governor Jackson Mandago has of late been under increasing pressure from the Assembly with majority of the members expressing discontent over the manner in which he was conducting the affairs of the County Government.
And in a dramatic turn of events majority MCA’s on Wednesday announced that plans were afoot to start the process of ejecting the governor from office.
Sources revealed the MCA’s who are allegedly being led by Kapsuswa-Kuinet Ward MCA Rebecca Chepchirchir Magut have resolved to pass a vote of no confidence in Jackson Mandago, a move that could see him ultimately forced out of office.
Uasin Gishu County residents will now have to brace themselves for leadership changes in the County Government in view of the impending motion to send the governor home.
The governor is being accused of being arrogant with a habit of belittling the Members of the County Assembly by ignoring their development inputs and has made himself unavailable,unreachable and inaccessible.It is also further alleged development in the County was being done in a haphazard manner and without the input of the county residents.
Mandago also faces a strong censure over the manner in which his government has been conducting the recruitment of workers with accusation that he “dished out the jobs to his friends and political cronies.”
This new developments comes in the wake of a Censure Motion that has been tabled in the Assembly to axe three top County Officials.
