Lobby condemns embarrassing Nakuru MCA behaviour

12 March 2015, 22:19

Nairobi - A lobby group has condemned the ugly incident witnessed at the Nakuru County Assembly where Members of County Assembly exchanged blows on the floor of the House.

Counties Efficiency in Development(CEDEV) chairman James Mugo said that the MCA's had an opportunity to use dialogue instead of fighting engaging in a fierce fist fight.

“It is so disappointing that our MCA's chose to fight in public and paint the county negatively,”said Mr Mugo during an interview adding that the brawl was a shame to the electorate.

Mr Mugo urged area leaders including governor Kinuthia Mbugua to intervene and help the rival groups to iron out their disagreements in a civil way.

He noted that the conflict pitting the county Speaker Susan Kihika  a section of MCAs would be disastrous to the county development if not amicably addressed.

The lobbyist at the same time accused the MCA's of engaging in vicious wrangles  saying the drama was synonymous with chaos that were perpetrated by the former Councillors which only retarded development.

“It is high time leaders realised that they are in office to represent interests of people who elected them .I urge the leaders to take responsibility to ensure that challenges facing the local people are addressed,”said Mugo.

He added that the public has a right to recall leaders who disrespect offices they represent.He the said that the constant wrangles would derail development in the county and portray a bad image to investors.

On Tuesday, chaos erupted in the Nakuru County Assembly after differences emerged over leader of majority seat.

The MCAs fought in the  House Chambers after a 'stranger' was spotted on the press gallery whom a section  of them accused of being a 'spy'.

He called for political maturity among Members of County Assembly across the country urging them to behave as leaders and not goons.

This comes even as the anti-graft agency,the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission is said to have stepped in to probe the conduct of the leaders.
