Impeachment

However, Governor Mutua had said that Maliti’s impeachment was a political witch hunt, adding that he would continue serving as the Finance CEC.

He accused the MCAs of impeaching the deputy governor to hide their corrupt dealings.

According to the Governor, Maliti had written to the county assembly asking them to provide proper financial statements, expenditure and other relevant financial documents.
