Ruto does not want 'excessive' powers for MCA's

01 October 2014, 17:50 William Korir

Nairobi - Council of Governors chairman Isaac Ruto says excessive powers for Members of County Assemblies will lead to crisis at County level.

Ruto says that the possibility of MCA's being able to fire County government executives might open up a huge problem in future.

" The fact that we can have MCA's directly interfere with business at County level is a problem that needs to be handled in the right manner, he said Wednesday.

Ruto spoke after the Council moved to court to stop the possibility of MCA's firing executives in the Makueni County Government.

The MCA's through a notice to Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana want County executives Ruth Kyatha and Judith Kalinga removed from office.

They say that the two cannot hold office for various reasons, a move that Ruto feels is dangerous.

The governors argue that the manner in which the proceedings were undertaken depicts an unreasonable and unfair administrative action.

The governors want the court to restrain any county assembly in the country from invoking powers conferred under section 40 of the County Government Act 2012 to remove county Executive Committee Members from office.

Ruto says that allowing them do so will open room for manipulation.
