No premises to host county Govts

16 January 2013, 19:13 Wangui Joseph

Transition Authority Commission Kenya has identified that some counties will have to rent offices from private premises since they either have none or are not adequately prepared to usher in the Devolved Government.

Commission’s member Dubar Abdi Maalim said as the commission goes round the country checking, majority do not have adequate space to host Governor and his executives.

He was addressing a meeting held at Nyeri Provincial Commissioner Headquarters hall, attended by Government and parastatal heads to offer them civic educate about devolved governments.

Transition Authority is a statutory body established under constitution to provide legal, institutional, policy and operational framework and mechanisms for the transition to devolved Government.

According to Dubar, premises to host county Government offices should be friendly and accessible to people with disabilities, spacious enough and have an office for Hansard services-it is per-requisite.

In addition, staffs to work under them should not be from one ethnic group or gender, and should be free from nepotism and composed of experts to undertake roles sufficiently.

“So far 19 counties have no immediate available resources while in others the identified premises need refurbishment and renovation,” he noted.

Dubar also called upon people to read preamble of the constitution so as to familiarize themselves with it fully.
