A section of Nairobi MCAs have vehemently spoken against the ongoing plans to impeach governor Mike Sonko.
Led by Hospital Ward MCA Patrick Musili, the MCAs are instead rooting for reconciliation ,noting that an impeachment will trigger chaos and endless politicking that will further derail service delivery.
They have further called on the proponents of the motion to instead support the power deed signed by Governor Mike Sonko and the national governmemt.
” The governor has been barred from office and we have no deputy.Given that the big four functions have been taken away,we need to sit down and talk about recinciliation,” Musili told journalist s at City Hall.
The MCA noted that the gesture by the president was an indicator that he wants order and continued service delivery and not a call for impeachment.
” We can’t go back to campaign mood because we only have two years remaining and with the BBI likely to end with a referendum,we are going to create more confusion,” he added
His sentiments were supported by Utalii ward MCA Wilson Ochola, who noted that impeaching Sonko will be a big mistake.
” It is a mistake that l cannot support.We have to look at the bigger picture and stop this excitement about the impeachment,”
Ochola said that the MCAs must support devolution and not be part of scheme to destroy it.
Sonko’s impeachment is slated for Tuesday next week, with MCAs still divided about it.
The motion was tabled by Makongeni MCA Peter Imwatok.
Waithaka MCA Antony Kiragu has also opposed the impeachment,noting that it is a waste of time.
