Plans are already underway for swearing in of Wajir County Deputy Governor Ahmed Ali Mukhtar.

Wajir County Members of Parliament have chartered two flights from Wilson Airport to Wajir International Airport ahead of the swearing-in of the deputy governor following the impeachment of Governor Mohamed Abdi on Monday.

The MPs are accompanied by a High Court judge to swear in Wajir deputy governor Ahmed Ali Muktar as the third governor of the county.

Wajir County: Venue of the swearing-in

The venue for swearing will be Wajir County Assembly grounds where a heavy contingent of police officers have been deployed to deter in any intruder intending to serve them with court orders.

By the time of going to press, a Gazette notice on the impeachment of the governor had not been issued by the speaker of the Senate Ken Lusaka.

The embattled governor lost his seat after 25 senators voted to kick him out of office.

The lawmakers voted in favour of one charge of two brought against the governor, which included gross violation of the Constitution or any other law, abuse of office, gross misconduct and crimes under national law.
