County commissioners receive eviction notices

24 April 2013, 14:37 Alloys Musyoka

Muslims for Human Rights activist group has threatened to eject county commissioners if they don't vacate their offices in three months.

The group claims that county commissioners are unlawfully occupying public offices across the country.

Led by the Chief Executive Officer Hussein Khalid the group said that they have issued eviction notices to the six county commissioners in the Coast region.

Khalid said the county commissioners are not recognized by the law and so they should not be occupying public offices.

He said the courts ruled last year that their positions are not enshrined in the new constitution and therefore supposed to leave.

The officer noted that the group has also written to the Transitional Authority to clarify who is supposed to manage county government.

He was addressing the media in Malindi after meeting with Kilifi county representatives where they discussed issues affecting development in the county.

Khalid said that they don't recognize county commissioners.

"We only recognize county governors but not commissioners who were given posts unlawfully,"posed the officer.

He said that the group only recognizes county governors who were elected by voters.
"We cannot just sit and watch people misusing public funds while they have no space in the constitution that Kenyans voted for vehemently. We have the power through the new constitution to evict them," said the officer.

He said everyone has a right to safeguard the new Constitution and ensure that laws are followed without fear.
