Bahati MP warns governors

26 February 2014, 14:27 Robert Kibet

Nakuru - Bahati MP, Kimani Ngunjiri has warned governors against insinuation that their county governments are just like independent states.

The legislator cited that, the county governments are under national government governed by one president. Ngunjiri called upon the governors not to act as though they are above the law reiterating that they should be accountable for the public resources entrusted to them.

“The sovereignty of this nation is the citizen hence there should be accountability in every institution and different arms of government guided by mutual respect,” Ngunjiri said.

On the ongoing supremacy battle between the Senate, Governors and legislators, Ngunjiri called upon the three arms of government to embrace dialogue to avoid the tussle affecting service delivery and causing anarchy.

President Uhuru Kenyatta had earlier pointed that accountability is key urging each leader to be accountable to the relevant departments.

Speaking in Subukia, Ngunjiri said the Senate has the mandate to supervise governors and that members of county assemblies have the same mandate.

“Some of the nine governors who were summoned by the Senate Committee on Finance attended hence few governors are only looking for cheap politics and recognition which is not healthy for the country unity and development,” said Ngunjiri.

The legislator expressed optimism that the tussle which has been ongoing will end soon so that the leaders can continue to improve the livelihoods of the Kenyans.

Meanwhile, the legislator called upon the youths to prepare to borrow the Uwezo Funds to be disbursed soon in order to engage in profit making projects. He said that in order to realize and eliminate unemployment, youths and women should utilize it to the fullest. He also pointed out that the cash will be under Members of Parliament and not the Women Representatives.
