Nakuru County Speaker tells senate not to interfere with CDB

07 August 2014, 23:02 Wilshere

Nakuru - County Assembly Speaker Susan Kihika has said that it is unconstitutional for the senators to be part of the County Development Board (CDB).

Kihika sad that the 2010 constitution was very clear on the roles of the Members of County Assembly MCAs and that other elected leaders should not interfere with their work. 

“ Our constitution very clear on the roles of MCAs and I don’t see any point as to why senators want to be part of this,” she said.

Speaking on Wednesday in Nakuru town, the speaker urged both the National Assembly and the Senate house to keep off from county assembly matters.

She observed the frequent interference from senators and MPs will only result in devolution failing in the country.

She said that MCAs should be given their time to do their oversight role to the county executive.

Kihika said that if MPs and Senators are interested in MCAs positions they should relinquish their current positions and seek fresh mandate from the public at the ground level.

“If MPs and Senators want to be part of MCAs they should just relinquish themselves from their current post and seek afresh mandate,” she said.

The speaker also defended the foreign trips made by Nakuru MCAs saying that this was an exaggeration being made by MPs to taint MCAs in bad light.
