Governor wants rates reduced

25 July 2013, 13:24 Steve Wambugu

Nakuru County Governor Kinuthia Mbugua has requested that a motion be tabled in the county assembly to reduce the rates that traders pay. 

The county boss said the KES 360 that traders currently pay per month is a lot of money compared to their monthly income.

“I will be very happy if the house comes up with a motion that will bring down the rates that traders pay because the current rates are a bit too high for the common mwananchi,” he said.

While addressing Members of County Assembly (MCA) on Wednesday after the swearing in of 19 nominated MCAs, Kinuthia urged the nominees to strive to bring change in the county since a lot remains to be done.

He said that the additional 19 nominated members to the county will strengthen the county in service delivery to residents.

Among the 19 nominees, 17 were women while the remaining two were men representing people with disability and marginalized community.  

“We have a lot of work that needs to be done and am happy now that we have new MCAs joining us because this will help us improve our service to the public,” he said.

Mbugua also called on the leaders to fully devote their time servingthe public adding that the county residents were counting on them.

He reiterated that Nakuru County had met all requirements in the nomination of the 19 members as stipulated in the constitution.

He pointed out that the newly sworn in nominees reflect the face of the country since all groups have been represented.

“This assembly reflects the face of this country because we have tried to represent each community the best we can,” he noted.
