The planned swearing-in of Kiambu Deputy Governor James Nyoro as the county boss following the impeachment of the embattled Ferdinand Waititu has been postponed. Nyoro was set to be sworn into office today before the changes were announced. Jubilant Kiambu County Assembly Members had already started to arrive at the assembly to witness the oath-taking event before the cancellation.
The Judiciary has said that the postponement has been opted for because of unavoidable circumstances.
“We apologise for any inconvenience caused,” the statement reads
The governor was impeached on Wednesday after his fight to remain in office did not bear fruits. Waititu on Thursday moved to court to challenge his impeachment after he was shown the door.
Earlier today, the Judiciary has confirmed that Nyoro was set to be sworn into office.
“High Court Judge John Onyiego will today Thursday, January 30, 2020, preside over the swearing-in ceremony of the new Kiambu Governor,” the statement read in part.
Waititu has attributed his woes to his political rivals. He had attempted to plead with the Senate to save his job before he was ousted from office.
Nyoro and Waititu have not been seeing each after the latter was linked to graft in his office.
