Bungoma MPs caution MCAs against impeaching governor

09 June 2014, 17:11 Arap Yego

Bungoma - Two legislators from Bungoma County have cautioned Members of the County Assembly (MCA’s) from the region against supporting the planned impeachment of  Governor Kenneth Lusaka, saying that the act will make the county to lag behind in development.

The legislators, Dr Reginalda Wanyonyi (Bungoma Women Representative ) and Suleiman Murunga (Kimilili) said impeaching Governor Ken Lusaka will deal a major blow to the region’s growth and development.

Dr Wanyonyi said the impeachment of Lusaka is ill-timed as it comes in a time when the county is already making strides in development.

“The impeachment agenda by a section of the MCAs is a bad idea. It is retrogressive and those pushing for it should abandon the idea with immediate effect,” said Dr Wanyonyi.

“Governor Lusaka has a good working relationship with President Uhuru Kenyatta who recently graced his homecoming party. We as the region's leaders should support him because the fruits of this good rapport will benefit those we represent in the region,” said Dr Wanyonyi.

Murunga said the MCAs should follow the example set by the  Bungoma MPs, who recently announced that they are ready to work with President Uhuru Kenyatta for the benefit of their electorate.

The Kimilili lawmaker said the county representatives must set aside their political differences and work with the Governor who was elected just like them, and wait for 2017 to vote him out if they have no faith in him.

“I hosted President Uhuru Kenyatta last month in Kamukuywa during Lusaka’s homecoming. All my colleagues present from the county announced that they will work with the government. I appeal to the MCA’s to do the same with the Governor in the county irrespective of their political party affiliations,” said Murunga, who asked the MCA’s to let Governor Lusaka finish his term.

They made the remarks over the weekend at the burial ceremony of Dr Richard Nabwana in Kimilili town.
