On Tuesday afternoon, Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru was ousted from her position by a section of MCAs in her region.
A total of 23 MCAs out of 33 voted in favour of the motion by Mutira ward representative Kinyua Wangui to remove the county boss from office. Four MCAs abstained while six were absent.
None of the members present during the debate defended the former Devolution Cabinet Secretary with four Members of the County Assembly opting to abstain.
Six other members did not attend the sitting according to Assembly records.
Kenyans on Twitter have come together to react on the impeachment.

It is not yet over, Kirinyaga Governor Ann Mumbi Waiguru has been impeached but she is going to bounce back via senate.
