The motion to impeach Siaya County Deputy Governor William Oduol has been approved by the County Assembly.
The motion was tabled by East Ward Member of County Assembly (MCA) Gordon Onguru who accused Oduol of gross misconduct.
38 County Assembly MCAs Monday voted to endorse the impeachment motion that could potentially see Oduol become first Deputy Governor to be impeached after the August 9 polls.
The assembly has now formed a 10-member special committee to look into the matter and report back to the house within the next 10 days.
Oduol, who has been expelled from the ODM Party, accuses the Governor James Orengo-led administration of misappropriation of public funds.
He has vowed to fight to the bitter end until he exposes how millions of public funds were withdrawn from the county kitty in mysterious circumstances.
Nandi County Senator Samson Cherargei was quick to weigh-in on the matter terming the move sickening.
“The impeachment proceedings & removal from ODM party of Siaya Deputy Governor H.E Oduol by Tinga is sickening & nauseating for exposing corruption in Siaya County govt. As a Senate, we shall NOT impeach DG Oduol nor confirm impeachment proceedings from Siaya County Assembly against him. This once again has confirmed Tinga as Lord of corruption, poverty and impunity! Blessed afternoon,” charged Nandi County Senator Samson Cherargei.
