Nearly half of Wajir MCAs have put area Governor Mohamed Abdi Mohamud on the chopping board over alleged corruption and abuse of office among other charges. At least 23 out of 49 ward representatives signed an impeachment motion against the governor by Wednesday, August 19, awaiting county assembly clerk’s perusal.
Mohamed Abdi was accused of presiding over corruption. The motion mover Benane ward MCA Abdi Mohamed Sheikh called on the clerk Shalle Sheikh Mursal to expedite the impeachment process. “Kindly find attached notices of motion regarding the impeachment of Governor Mohamed Abdi Mohamud for onward transmission and approval by the speaker. We, therefore, seek the support of the people of Wajir as we execute our mandate,” he said in a notice. The wrangles between the county boss and a section of MCAs attracted attention of the elders and the local political leadership whose attempts to broker a deal failed.
