Embattled Wajir Governor Mohamed Abdi Mohamud will Monday afternoon know whether the Senate will uphold or reject his impeachment by the County Assembly.

The Senate has convened a special sitting at 2:30 p.m to consider a report by an 11-member team on the proposed ouster of the governor following the conclusion of an impeachment trial on Thursday.

Last month, the MCAs impeached the governor for alleged abuse of office, violation of the Constitution, violations under written law and undermining the authority of the assembly.

The Wajir County Assembly has linked Mohamud’s wife, Kheira Omar, daughter Farhiya Mohamed and son Yusuf Mohamed to alleged irregular multi-million shilling contracts that formed the basis of his impeachment.

Also at the heart of the impeachment probe is businessman Osman Abdi Jimale, who has been linked to several companies that have allegedly continued to win lucrative county tenders.
