SEC. 93-13-23. Removing guardian; requiring new bond.
The court by which a guardian was appointed, may, for sufficient cause, remove him after having him cited to appear. If the court should ascertain that the sureties of a guardian were insufficient at the time the bond was executed, or have since become so, or are of doubtful solvency, it may require the guardian to give a new bond; and if he refuse or neglect to do so, he may be removed. If the sureties of any guardian apprehend danger, and desire to be discharged, they may petition the court for that purpose, and the guardian shall be cited, and if, on hearing, the court should be of opinion that the complaint is well founded, the guardian may be required to give a new bond, and, on failure to do so, may be removed.
