Members of the County Assembly of Kitui have asked Assembly speaker *Hon. George Ndoto to resign or be impeached over what they allege is sheer incompetence and incapacity.
Calls for Ndoto’s impeachment come hot on the heels of a botched impeachment motion against Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu in what was largely seen a systematic witch-hunt and personal vendetta by the besieged speaker among others.
Preceding the witch-hunt impeachment against Ngilu was the mutilation of 2020/2021 financial year budget and the shooting down of nominees to the Kitui Public Service Board in quick succession and presided over by the now seemingly unpopular Speaker Ndoto.
George Ndoto has systematically orchestrated unmatched sabotage of service delivery to Kitui County by shooting down executive budgets at every turn, rejecting qualified Kitui sons and daughters who have been dully interviewed and appointed to serve in the Kitui County government and openly blocking legislation of essential laws to projects and programs that create employment opportunities to Kitui people.
Ndoto’s unending vendetta and a decades old grudge against Governor Ngilu seems to be his biggest achilles heel. He is obviously incapable of dissociating his personal interests from the interests of Kitui people.
Ndoto’s preoccupation with defeating Ngilu has become a pipe dream and an obsession that is destroying the once vibrant Wiper party from within and dearly costing the people of Kitui in terms of development.
Sources indicate that Wiper (now tired of Ndoto’s antics) is keen to replace him with a younger and more forward thinking speaker before Wiper’s popularity plumets even further.
The chickens have come home to roost.
