James Nyoro sworn-in as Kiambu governor

James Nyoro has been sworn-in as Kiambu governor following Senate’s decision to uphold the impeachment of Ferdinand Waititu by Kiambu County Assembly.

Nyoro took the oath of office a few minutes past 1 pm on Friday, January 31 in a function attended by officers from Judiciary, political leaders and residents.

The swearing in function which had been scheduled to take place on Thursday, January 30 did not take place after High Court judge John Onyiego faulted the arrangement saying the right procedures were not followed.

Onyiego said the County Committee on assumption of the Office of Governor failed to publish the time, date and the place of the swearing in both the Kenya and County Gazette.

“It is those Gazette notices that grant the power to swear in the deputy governor in such a situation,” said Onyiego.

The need to fill the vacuum arose after Governor Ferdinand Waititu was impeached by Senate on Wednesday evening.

Nyoro contested for kiambu governorship in 2013 but lost to William Kabogo. He went on to pair with Waititu in 2017 in a ticket that sent the incumbent home.
