She faces allegation of abuse of office, violations of the law, incompetence, arrogance and acting beyond her powers.

The motion, tabled by MCA Abdirashid Jimale Salat got the support of 14 members while 11 shot it down. Two members abstained while eleven others were nowhere to be seen.

The Wajir County Assembly has been accused of complacency in the past with many arguing that the Members are compromised when faced with major decisions.

This was evident when members accused each other of arrogance with some who were among the architects of the move deserting the course in the last minute.

Women members welcomed the move terming it as a victory for Women.
