Embattled Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu Wednesday pleaded with Senators to sympathize with him during a ruling on his impeachment motion.
Speaking in the House on the second day of his impeachment proceedings, Waititu warned the Senators not to judge him based on his perceived political standing, but peruse the facts carefully before making a decision.
In a move to warn the senators who would want to vie for gubernatorial seats, Waititu implicated that he will be hard on them in future if he becomes a senator.
” Handle my case like any of the 7 previous impeachment motions that came before you, which you handled with dignity and integrity,” Waititu said.
“I beseech this House to make a ruling that cannot be challenged in any court of law, so that everybody would admire to be a Senator. Like me, I thought that when I am done with Kiambu I would become a Senator,” he added.
By warning the senators, e added that he will be a Senator in future, “Yes, I know I will contest and I know I can get. I will be a Senator one day. Just consider your case the way you would like yours to be considered when Waititu will be a Senator here.”
