Nakuru Senator calls for the impeachment of Governor Susan Kihika

Senator Tabitha Karanja has called for the impeachment of Governor Susan Kihika, adding a new twist to the dispute that has resulted in the suspension of operations at War Memorial Hospital in Nakuru.

She stated that there were sufficient grounds to impeach the governor due to the county government’s raid, which left tens of patients unattended.

“The land lease by the hospital is genuine as some people want to take over this prime land and its time MCAs acted as there are enough grounds for impeachment,” she said.

The county government is said to have taken over the management of the hospital on Saturday soon after hospital directors were arrested on Friday.

Lawyers representing the Nakuru County Government however denied accusations of forcefully taking over the hospital and ejecting patients.

Addressing the press in Naivasha, Senator Karanja said she was doing her oversight duty.

She comforted families whose patients were affected and called on the Ministry of Health to intervene to avert loss of lives as a result of the dispute.

“We sincerely sympathise with the patients, next of kin, doctors, workers and investors. We pray that God gives them endurance and power to overcome.”

Flanked by area leaders, the Senator retaliated that she has no interest in the governor’s position and is only keen on playing her oversight role.

“I will continue to perform my oversight role with zeal and passion without fear or favour because I have the mandate of the great people of Nakuru County,” she said.
