The assembly also observed that most of the queries were captured in the Auditor-General’s report for financial year 2017/18, which included irregular payment of Sh137 million in legal fees to advocate Ken Pundo.

The adopted report also stated that the county executive committee member disregarded the committee by failing to show up when the assembly summoned him twice to defend himself.

They noted that he also failed to send a legal representative.

OFFICIAL PROBE

The committee also recommended that the Director of Criminal Investigations and the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission take up the matter as it borders on offences such as economic crimes.

Last week, defiant members of the assembly vowed to proceed with the impeachment despite a court order stopping them from continuing with the process.

On July 5, the Employment and Labour Relations Court in Nairobi issued a conservatory order temporarily stopping the impeachment proceedings against Mr Achar.

This following an application by the executive for the court to save his job.

In the matter certified as urgent before judge Maureen Onyango, Mr Achar had sought orders restraining the assembly and the Speaker from continuing with the impeachment process pending an inter-parties hearing.
