The swearing in of Mr James Nyoro as Kiambu governor will be conducted on January 31, 2020 at the County headquarters.

The decision to swear the Mr Nyoro, who was impeached Ferdinand Waititu’s deputy, comes after the initial swearing failed to take place on Thursday after a judge dispatched by the Judiciary raised legal issues with the manner the event was planned.
It also comes hours after the high court declined to stop the swearing in ceremony after Mr Waititu moved to court to challenge his impeachment by the Senate and the planned swearing in of his deputy
High Court Judge James Makau instead certified the case as urgent and asked Mr Waititu to serve copies of the case documents to the parties by Friday noon before a hearing of the case on Monday.
