It’s possible that Meru Deputy Governor Isaac Mutuma and Member of Parliament for Tigania East Mpuru Aburi are escaping right now.
This comes after a request was made for the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) to look into the two Meru leaders’ allegedly lewd remarks made against Governor Kawira Mwangaza.
The Coalition Against Sexual Violence (CSV) called on the EACC to take strong action against the two leaders after they made comments about Governor Mwangaza that amounted to sexual harassment in a letter dated November 10.
Their acts call for prompt and forceful action. A portion of the statement said, “We demand that the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission look into this matter as these leaders have clearly fallen short of the conduct for a public officer.”
“In addition, we insist that the proper channels be used to hold them responsible for their deeds.”
Additionally, the lobby organization insisted that the two apologize to the governor and publicly retract their remarks.
The derogatory remarks regarding the governor’s gender and marital status, according to CSV, had nothing to do with the position for which she was elected.
“These reprehensible comments, insensitively made in front of an applauding audience, amount to a heinous assault on the governor’s person. The statement went on, “The words are a flagrant insult to the dignity of women everywhere as well as to the governor.
After the Senate plenary, CSV applauded the majority decision to keep Meru governor Kawira Mwangaza in office, even though the Members of the County Assembly (MCAs) had originally called for her impeachment.
According to a CSV statement, “it is crucial that accusations made against leaders are verified and satisfy the necessary standards in an objective manner.”
The Senate plenary on Wednesday rejected an impeachment resolution brought forth by the Meru MCAs against Mwangaza.
