, NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 11 – Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Alex Ole Magelo says the impeachment Motion against Governor Evans Kidero will proceed Tuesday afternoon because he has not received the court order stopping it.

Magelo told Capital FM News that he is still expecting Kidero at the Assembly to defend himself against the allegations levelled against him.

The County Assembly Speaker indicated that even if a court order will be delivered, it will be discussed before the House and a decision made on the process.

“I cannot discuss with the media what will happen once I receive the order. Everything has to be discussed within the precincts of the House and all decisions are usually made within the Assembly,” he stated.

Kidero on Monday obtained a temporary court order blocking his impeachment proceedings.

The impeachment Motion was tabled during a chaotic session last week, although four of the MCAs listed on it later claimed that their signatures were forged and that they were not consulted on the matter.

They include Jeffer Kassam, Peter Njau, Charles Thuo and George Njoroge.

Viwandani MCA Samuel Nyang’wara who tabled the Motion however insisted that the four were part of the plot and has dared them to report the matter to the police.

Kidero is accused of violating the Constitution by failing to implement the Ward Development Fund.

It requires two thirds of the 127 MCAs in the county to remove Governor Kidero from office.
