Mohammed Abdi  Becomes The Third Governor To Be impeached.

He has been found guilty of gross violation of the constitution.

Wajir Governor Mohammed Abdi has been impeached with a total of 25 senators voting in favour of the ouster motion on Monday night.

Other two senators voted against the motion while four abstained. The impeachment takes effect immediately, though Abdi can appeal the decision in court.

Mohammed Abdi had earlier made a passionate appeal to senators to be sympathetic and humane to him and spare his job.

The county chief appealed to the House to carefully study the charge that has been sustained by the committee that investigated his ouster and gives him another chance.

“I wish to plead with the senators to be sympathetic and not just impeach me just because of one issue. It can be a violation of the Constitution but it is not a gross violation,” he said.

The county chief pleaded before the plenary after a House committee that investigated his ouster recommended his removal for violating Article 43 of the Constitution.
