MCA condemns governor for evicting hawkers from CBD

14 January 2015, 20:49 Wishere

Nakuru - Nakuru County Leader of Majority Samuel Waithuki has said that the eviction of hawkers from the town's Central Business District (CBD) was illegally done by Governor Kinuthia Mbugua.

He said that the Mbugua should have consulted with Members of County Assembly before embarking on the eviction process.

He said that the constitution gives the county assembly the authority to come up with policies that should be employed in the county and not the governor.

“The governor should have brought the matter to the assembly before kicking out the hawkers from the CBD because MCAs represent the interest of the public,” he said.

Waithuki said added that the executive side needs to know that there is an assembly which deals directly with the people at the grassroots level and that they should be respected.

“The governor needs to know there is assembly in Nakuru County and he should not try and over step on his given mandate,” he said.

He warned that if the governor continues making decisions on his own he will make the public turn against the elected leaders.

He said that most of the hawkers who have been evicted from Naivasha town and Gilgil are now turning on their respective MCAs for money since they don’t have a place to operate from.

Waithuki said any MCA can move a motion at the floor of the house stopping any further relocation of hawkers until the governor consults with the assembly.

“It is very possible to stop the relocation of hawkers and traders by simply tabling a motion in the assembly because we are the policy makers of the county,” he said.
