'Broken' Makueni given one week to solve issues

30 September 2014, 08:04 William Korir

Nairobi - The Makueni County Government has been handed one week ultimatum to reconcile or face dissolution.

The County is in a complete state of disarray as the County Government has failed to see eye to eye with the County Assembly thus a breakdown of activity.

Thus far, legislative activity is non existent as Members of County Assemblies MCA's push for the ouster of Governor Kivutha Kibwana.

The problems escalated last week with the shooting of six people at the County Assembly premises.

Kibwana has already admitted that there might be need for dissolution, and the Council of Governors has also insisted now that there is little to smile about.

Chairman Isaac Ruto says that one week has been given to the County bosses to solve the matters pending and if not, then there will be need for fresh elections.

" We give them one week to sort out the problems or we will be forced to close operations and head to elections, he said Monday.

Ruto says that the indication is that there is no way back for the County and thus it is just a matter of time before the first gubernatorial by- election is held.

" The indication is that there is no way there will be reconciliation so we wait and see. It does not look good though, he added.

Kibwana said over the weekend that reconciliation will be given a chance after which there will be hard decisions to make.

" There might be a way out but we also have to accept and prepare for the fact that there might be no way out of this, he said.

President Uhuru Kenyatta can by law dissolve the County following written submissions by those involved over the state of affairs.
