Commission of Inquiry into the dissolution of Makueni County will summon a witch doctor who has been adversely mentioned in the public hearings currently going on in Wote town.
The Mohammed Nyaoga – led commission arrived at the verdict of summoning the witch doctor commonly known as Mulika after one of the petitioners Pastor John Kangwana told the probe team that the witch doctor fueled the infighting between Governor Kivutha Kibwana and Members of the County Assembly (MCAs)
The pastor said the witch doctor visited the county assembly premises, which was then housing the Governor in 2013 prompting the MCAs to move their sittings to Malili.
Kagwana further told the commission that the MCAs had claimed that the Governor was behind the witch doctor’s visit after the 2013/2014 budget standoff.
“The MCAs alleged that the governor had brought Mulika and that is why they decided to conduct their sittings in Malili,” he said.
The pastor also narrated to the commission how the members of the clergy tried in vain to broker a truce between the Governor and the MCAs in the protracted standoff.
“Our efforts to bring the two arms of government to hold talks and cease the stalemate bore no fruits,” he said.
Kagwana told the commission that when the clergy summoned the Speaker Stephen Ngelu in an effort to end the infighting, they realized that he could not work together with the Governor.
“ We filed the petition to dissolve the county because we realized that the government could not execute its mandate,”he said.
The hearings continues.
