In Brief

– Sitting to impeach Waititu underway in the Senate

– Senators to convene after a short break to cast the final vote

The governor passionately appealed to senate members to serve him a sentence in a humane way and as they “would like to be treated if they became governors in future.”

The house had earlier in the day turned down an application by Waititu to have new evidence admitted. After listening to the governor make his case, Senate speaker Ken Lusaka adjourned the session for a 15-minute break after which senators will convene to cast the vote that will seal Waititu’s fate.
