Plot to impeach embattled Migori Governor Zachary Okoth Obado appears to have run into headwinds as Ward Reps were split down the middle over the decision.
Thomas Akungo of Kaler Ward tacitly announced that they oppose to the plan since the force to impeach Obado was purely from external.
Akungo who rallies behind the beleaguered governor termed the move by the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) to impeach him political and amounting to double standards.
He warned that majority of MCAs may not be able to marshal the requisite numbers to send Obado packing owing to the divisions in the Assembly.
He revealed that if anything, majority of the MCAs who attended the Nairobi meeting, which resolved to impeach Obado, opposed the decision.
Earlier today, Samwel Orima of North Kamagambo who is also a member of speaker’s panel adjourned the sitting saying they didn’t know the whereabouts of the assembly speaker Boaz Okoth.
But in a quick rejoinder, embattled deputy speaker George Omamba maintained that the decision to impeach Obado was arrived at after wider consultations within the top organ of the party.
He said it is not members but the party that decided.
