Leaders urge Govt not to give MCAs guns

29 September 2014, 13:29

Nakuru - Former Nakuru County councilors have hit out at Members of County Assembly who are demanding guns.

The councilors termed the demands by the MCAs as deceitful saying they are only driven by personal interests.

“Devolution is proving to be very expensive to common mwananchi and now our MCAs are asking for guns. This is unacceptable,” Joram Kariuki, a former Nakuru councilor said on Monday during a press conference.

Kariuki called on the Central Government not to heed to the demands of the MCAs saying they have done nothing since they were elected.

He said that all former councilors in the country will launch a campaign to scrap all the County governments in the country.

He also indicated that devolution has created tribal blocks contrary to constitution needs for national outlook, where minorities continue to be marginalized.

“MCAs are doing a lot of nothing to the wananchi and the government should not even think of giving them guns,” he said. 

Nakuru County Former Councilors’ Forum Secretary, Geoffrey Mutai said counties have failed to account for the revenue they generated from taxes and cess.

“The Controller of Budget report has indicated how the public continue to loose billions of shillings from unnecessary expenditure by the leaders hence devolution has failed and needs to be done away with,” Mutahi said.
