Nakuru County amends outdoor advertisement Bill

13 November 2014, 14:28 Wilshere

Nakuru - Nakuru County Outdoor Advertisement Bill 2014 was on Thursday read for the second time after being approved by assembly.

The Bill had early last month been referred back to the committee of trade to review the harsh penalties proposed on offenders who will erect an advertisement without a permit from the county government.

While tabling the Bill for the second reading, the chairman of trade committee, Michael Wangombe, said that his committee had amended all the contentious clauses.

“After this bill was referred back to us, we managed to work on the contentious clauses which included punitive penalties,” he said.

Wangombe told the House that they had reduced the fine from KES 1 million to KES 100 000 and jail term from 10 years to two years for first time offenders.

He said that his committee held a special sitting with all the stakeholders in the drafting of the Bill, as required by the constitution.

The chairman also said that the Bill has no hidden agenda against investors who want to set up their business in the County.

Wangombe also said that all advertisement billboards should be removed one week after the expiry of their permit.

He further said that the Bill, once passed into law, will help the County to generate more revenue.
