Kiambu Youth and Sports CeC Karungo wa Thang'wa has been ousted for allegedly disrespecting the acting Deputy Governor James Nyoro.
MCA at the Kiambu County Assembly on Wednesday voted for the motion to kick out Thang'wa from office over misconduct, abuse of office and incompetence.
In a motion moved by nominated MCA Njeri Bakari, the lawmakers agreed to send him home after he refused to cooperate with the acting governor.
The motion was seconded by Ndenderu MCA Solomon Kinuthia. Only two of the MCAs - Macharia Taki (Witeithie) and Lucy Njoki (nominated) - opposed the motion presented to the house.
Out of the 53 MCAs, 39 did not attend the sitting to kick out the Sports CeC. The report of the session is set to be forwarded to Nyoro before he can be relieved of his duties.
Majority Leader Gideon Gachara also said that the CeC has been disrespectful noting that they had tried to iron out the issues but he failed to listen to them.
“I’m a member of the sectoral Committee on Youths and Sports. We’ve tried to salvage the situation in the department, but what the CEC has done is move from one mess to another. The CeC has become a public relations perfectionist with nothing to show on the ground,” he said.
They also said that he was not in a position to advise the embattled Governor Ferdinand Waititu on issues of administration.
