Some Kirinyaga ward representatives are now pushing for the dissolution of the county.
The assembly members, who are opposed to Governor Anne Waiguru’s leadership style, say they will not relent until the county is disbanded.
Led by Majority Leader Kamau Murango, the reps said the devolved unit has become ungovernable and its leadership must go.
Mr Murango said they have started collecting signatures from residents to send the governor home. “We want to collect more than 30,000 signatures to dissolve the government. The process has started and there will be no retreat,” he said.
The ward reps spoke a day after Ms Waiguru accused them of plotting to sabotage the operations of her government by altering the 2020/2021 budget.
