NY­ERI WARD REPs AT­TEMPTED TO IM­PEACH GOV­ER­NOR

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Central -

In Septem­ber, Gov­er­nor Nder­itu Gach­agua blamed the at­tempt to im­peach him on the im­passe over the bud­get. Through his le­gal coun­sel Peter Wanyama, he said the county as­sem­bly con­spired to al­ter his 2016-17 bud­get by a stag­ger­ing Sh95.4 mil­lion, spark­ing a vi­cious stand­off. Gach­agua re­fused to as­sent to the al­tered bud­get. The Pub­lic Fi­nance Man­age­ment Act gives room for MCAs to al­ter the bud­get by one per cent. The MCAs said Gach­agua can­not ac­count for Sh351 mil­lion in 2015-16.
