The Senate has on Tuesday afternoon upheld impeachment charges against Embu Governor Martin Nyaga Wambora.
Consequently, Senate Speaker Ekwe Ethuro declared that Mr Wambora has ceased to be the governor of Embu County.
The senators by a majority vote confirmed the charges against Mr Wambora.
35 senators supported the impeachment motion while Embu Senator Lenny Kivuti abstained.
Baringo’s Gideon Moi was the only senator who voted against the impeachment of Mr Wambora.
Senators unanimously endorsed a report of a Senate Special Committee that recommended Mr Wambora’s removal.
Mr Wambora is accused of gross violation of the public procurement and Disposal Act, Public Finance Management Act and the Constitution of Kenya.
Contributors to the motion said they would only act on facts and that they were not on a witch hunting mission against any governor.
Earlier, the High Court declined to grant an application by Mr Wambora that sought to stop the Senate debate on his impeachment.
