Opposition urges MCAs to declare their wealth
13 May 2014, 14:22
Nyeri - The shadow government of Nyeri County is calling on the Members of the County Assembly (MCA) to declare their wealth in the next two weeks.
Shadow governor Kamau Gatwechi said the rate at which the MCAs are accumulating wealth is not commensurate with their salaries and allowances.
While addressing a press conference Tuesday at White Rhino Hotel, Gatwechi said the MCAs' wealth should be made public.
He stated that the MCAs should exercise their mandate and put the executive to task noting that impeachment is the only option to redeem the glory of Nyeri County.
He added that the MCAs' foreign trips are just costly and adding no value to the locals.
“They are overspending on overseas trips that do not add value to the citizenry of Nyeri,” he said.
“We demand transparency and accountability,” he added.
