A section of Meru county residents have accused the senate of biasness after saving the embattled Meru

county governor Kawira Mwangaza on Wednesday from ouster .

Led by Jacob Mantili an opinion leader from Igembe called on Members of County Assembly (MCAs) not to lose the fight in their quest to clean up the county mess and pave way for a competent and able leader who can lead the county in the right direction .

Mantili said the MCAs should look at auditors general report when it’s released and exercise their constitutional mandate.

“Meru people should not give up because am certain after three months the Meru MCAs will still find a violation of constitution to send the county boss home,” he said.

Mantili said disillusion of the county is also an option for Meru to be at peace.

“Meru MCAs should not fear dissolution of the county as Meru residents have known what is the real cause of non development in the county,” Mantili said.

He slammed the senators who voted to exonerate the county boss saying there was enough evidence to send Mwangaza home

“some of them want the county to be left behind when their counties are moving ahead,” Mantili added.

He said Meru has lost its glory of being one of the best counties in development and leadership.

Former Ruiri MCA Peter Mutuma accused Kirinyaga governor Ann Waiguru who is the council of governors chairperson of intervening to save Mwangaza a move they said is killing devolution .

Kalembe questioned why Senate did not look into how the county boss had demeaned his deputy Isaac Mutuma.

“why was allegations into the deputy governor ignored or because he is a man and he has no right as a woman,” Mutuma said.

Irene Mukuba a former ward Rep who also unsuccessfully vied for Women Rep in 2022 said there is an allegations of money exchanging hands in the Senate to save the county boss.

She said as Meru residents and leaders they will not tire to restore Meru glory.

Flanklin Karuti NOPEU party Secretary in Meru county said there was no fairness in the Senate.

He noted that Meru governor Kawira Mwangaza should respect other Meru leaders to allow speedy service delivery .

Betty Makena a resident of North Imenti said Mwangaza played gender card to get sympathy in the Senate despite her incompetency.
