The Kisumu County Assembly on Monday impeached Achar, after 37 Ward Reps reportedly supported the impeachment motion, while 3 voted against it. 

His impeachment comes just days after the Kisumu County Assembly warned that it would not cede its constitutional mandate to any other institution to hold him to account.

Achar was being investigated for abuse of office, gross misconduct, and violations of regulations governing his office.

He had been facing an investigation into his conduct by a committee established by the county assembly.

The minister had taken the assembly to court and had defied summons to appear before a committee investigating his conduct.
