Vihiga Governor Wilber Otichillo to be Oust by his Residents Over Funds Misappropriation

Governor Wilber Otichilo of Vihiga could be slated for an unceremonious exit from office after a lobby group in the county launched signatures’ collection to oust the county boss. The governor was accused of running the affairs of the county like his private, claiming he has been on an overdrive to amass wealth as he dissipates the county’s proceeds. The group, Vihiga Professionals, has now embarked on a mission to collect signatures from locals aiming at compelling the County Assembly to impeach him. Serious violations of the Constitution and the law by the governor and his cartel has made the Vihiga residents ask the court to declare him unfit to hold public office,” said Joseph Shimekha, an official in Vihiga Professionals. The governor was also accused of ignoring the health sector, failing to pay county health workers for over 20 months. The group said many development projects in the county had stalled despite funds being remitted . Should the MCAs fail in impeaching the governor, the group hinted it would be petitioning President Uhuru Kenyatta to suspend the county government.
