Nyeri county MCAs have impeached Governor Nderitu Gachagua for alleged misappropriation of funds.
Thirty two out of 46 MCAs voted in favor of the motion to impeach the governor.
The MCAs have accused Gachagua of misappropriation of public funds and abuse of office following recent revelations by the controller of budget that over 800 million shillings from the last financial year cannot be accounted for.
The MCAs spent the night at the assembly over fears of being blocked from accessing the chambers.
The decision will now be forwarded to the senate.
