County administrators to start wearing uniform

21 March 2015, 18:53 Mwangi Karanja

Kitale - Trans Nzoia County assembly passed a bill that will compel Ward administration, sub-County and Village administrators to wear uniform.

Governor Patrick Khaemba is expected to assent to the bill before its enforcement.

The bill, tabled by Waitaluk MCA Simon Makhanu, seeks to ease identification of the officers on the ground.

Makhanu alleged that members of the public have been complaining since they find it difficult to identify the administrators.

“The uniform will assist in identifying the administrators as they will be required to put it on during working hours,” he said.

Makhanu said although the administrators are constantly in contact with members of the public, they are not yet well known.

Sikhendu Ward MCA, Andrew Kutitila said that the administrators need to emulate their counterparts in the national government.

“Chiefs and County commissioners look good in their attires and administrators should also be in uniform,” he said.

However, speaking separately to the people, a ward administrator who asked for anonymity slammed the MCAs for not discussing serious issues affecting the residents.

He said their mandate is so different from chiefs' and they should not be classified together.

“We perform different functions and nobody should force us to wear uniforms. They want to undermine administrators after realizing that we are doing more in wards and sub-counties,” he said.
