A section of Meru elders have called for reconciliation between Governor Kawira Mwangaza and local MCAs promising to spearhead efforts to ensure the leaders coexist peacefully for realization of development in the county.
Led by the revered Njuri Ncheke Council, the elders complained that the reputation of the Ameru community had been tainted by the standoff between the Governor and MCAs vowing to never again allow it to happen again.
The group appealed to the county residents to exercise patience (with the leadership) as a lasting solution to the stalemate is sought.
They assured the locals that a meeting to bring together the warring groups will be organized soon.
The elders’ call of unity comes a week after the Senate quashed Governor Mwangaza’s recent impeachment by the County Assembly over alleged gross misconduct and abuse of office and 60 other charges that the Senators found did not warrant an ouster.
The 11-member Senate special committee, led by Senator Boni Khalwale vindicated the third Meru Governor after investigations into the 62 charges that had been levelled by the ward representatives.
