Court reinstates corrupt Wajir Governor Abdi Mohamud

Wajir County Governor Mohamed Abdi

The High Court in Meru on Wednesday reinstated the corrupt Wajir County Governor Abdi Mohamud.

In his argument, the judge said that the county assembly did not provide evidence of public participation in the removal of the Governor.

In 2021, Governor Mohamud was impeached on allegations of gross misconduct, abuse of office and financial impropriety.

The April 2021 decision saw 37 MCAs vote in favour of the impeachment motion while 10 opposed his removal from office.

Despite his reinstatement, the following are some of the corruption allegations against him and others that happen in his county.

IFMIS Password

The National Treasury blocked and took back the password for the Integrated Financial Management System – IFMIS for Wajir due to high level corruption blamed squarely on Govenor Mohamud.

Officials Jailed

Three officials of the Wajir County Government were jailed handed four years jail sentence by a magistrate court over corruption.

The three Ahmed Omar, Daud Abdullahi and Jeff Mworia are accused of withdrawing the money from a KCB Bank account in 2018. Wajir County Governor Mohamed Mohamud testified that ‘he did not issue instructions for the withdrawal of Sh26 million and was unaware of a request by the Finance executive for an overdraft facility of the amount at KCB, Wajir”.

Anti-corruption chief magistrate Teresia Murigi ruled the prosecution had proved its case against the three. She said that Omar had the mandate to approve how many signatures were required to withdraw the cheque from imprest.

Healthcare crisis

The healthcare situation in the county is in dire straits; thanks to governor Mohamud’s incompetence.

The problem ranges from lack of essential drugs, lab reagents, oxygen to demoralized staff. There is also shortage of PPEs for frontline health workers since national government corona donations are getting exhausted.

Normalised Corruption, negligence and impunity

Though the Anti-corruption forces were concentrated in the county during Governor Mohamud’s reign, the looting and philandering didn’t start with him.
