CORD MCAS SAID TO BE ‘POCKETED’
Last month, Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale said MCAs in Cord zones seem to have been compromised by their governors. Khalwale said most of the impeachment motions the Senate has received in the last three years were against Jubilee governors. “It means MCAs in Jubilee areas seem to have understood their role of oversight more than their Cord counterparts,” he said. But Mombasa’s Hassan Omar said leaders can be impeached at any point during their terms, regardless of the time at which issues were raised against them. He said there were constitutional issues concerning the judiciary in the oversight roles of the assemblies.
