A section of Kwale residents has termed their assembly members as a lazy flock that can’t impeach Governor Salim Mvurya.
They said even if the governor was involved in any dubious deals they would just remain mum.
On Wednesday Kwale governor Salim Mvurya failed to honor summons by Kwale County Assembly members to explain on 160 million shillings supplementary budget.
Kwale county assembly speaker Sammy Ruwa said the summons however had nothing to do with impeaching the governor.
“We only want the governor to shed light on his 160 million shillings supplementary budget that the county assembly members rejected,” said Mr. Ruwa.

He Said the MCA’s were not planning to impeach the governor and what is being spread are mere rumors.
“The county assembly wants the government to focus more on health and taming Coronavirus in the county while the executive wanted to buy food for locals, that’s the only argument,” he said.
Locals have condemned the assembly for planning governor Mvurya’s impeachment.
Locals in Kinango Sub-county held a protest against the county assembly members warning them that they will not retain their political positions come 2022.

“We will ensure all the Kwale MCA’s are thrown out in 2022 general elections,” noted an activist Salim Mohammed.
He said Mvurya has delivered and should not be victimized.
Meanwhile, a seven-member committee has been nominated to oversee the process after Mvurya submitted a letter asking for more time.
The MCA’s led by Deputy county assembly speaker Andrew Mulei will present a report to the assembly on Mvurya’s letter.
