In Summary
  • Mr Emilio Kathuri is seeking interpretation of the Supreme Court’s judgment. He argues that it allows the impeachment process against Embu Governor Martin Wambora to continue.

Former Manyatta MP Emilio Kathuri has moved to court seeking the removal of Embu Governor Martin Wambora from office, claiming that he is unfit to hold office following his impeachment three years ago.

Mr Wambora’s impeachment was invalidated by the High Court on the basis that then Speaker Kariuki Mate and Assembly Clerk Jim Kauma had acted in contempt of court by allowing debate on the motion.

The decision was upheld by the Court of Appeal.

‘UNFIT’

However, the Supreme Court two weeks ago ruled that Mr Kariuki and Mr Kauma were not in contempt of the court and also faulted Justice Cecilia Githua for interfering with a constitutional process.

Mr Kathuri is seeking interpretation of the Supreme Court’s judgment, saying Mr Wambora stood impeached for gross violation of the Constitution.
