NYERI WARD REPs ATTEMPTED TO IMPEACH GOVERNOR
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.
