Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka has called a special meeting of the Senate Business Committee Thursday afternoon to decide the fate of impeached Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru.

Mr Lusaka made the announcement as the governor, for the second time in three months, made an attempt to have the courts protect her from the claws of MCAs who are thirsty to get her out of office she has occupied since 2017. They impeached her on Tuesday.

Mr Lusaka summoned the HBC — a committee that schedules Senate business — after he received the communication from Kirinyaga County Assembly Speaker Anthony Gathumbi informing of the resolution of the motion on the impeachment of the governor.

Among the documents that were transmitted to the Senate are the Hansard report of the proceedings during the impeachment, evidence of the allegations used to support the impeachment motion and the list of the MCAs who voted and the respective charges.

At a media briefing in his office, Mr Lusaka said: “I’ve received the notification from Kirinyaga County Assembly and I’ve summoned a special session of the HBC today afternoon to discuss the way forward.”

“I want to assure Kenyans that Senate is a House of integrity and shall serve justice to both the assembly and the governor without fear or favour,” he added.
