Wako pushes for establishment of County Attorney offices

05 November 2014, 12:50 Magdalyn Mwaniki

Nakuru - Nakuru County Assembly members on Monday welcomed Busia Senator Amos Wako's bill seeking to establish County Attorney offices.

Led by Leader of Majority, Samuel Waithuki, the MCAs said County Attorneys will help reduce the huge legal costs incurred in hiring lawyers to represent the County government on various matters when it is sued and also advise the assembly during drafting of Bills.

“Wako, who was Kenya's onetime Attorney General, should move fast and I urge all senators to support it until it's made into law," he said.

Wako observed that County governments currently incur heafty bills in seeking legal opinions on various matters unlike the national government that has employed legal advisors.

Waithuki, who is the Naivasha East representative, also noted that the County Legal advisor must be competitively sourced by the respective County governments thereby ensuring they remain impartial but also patriotic while executing their roles.

“They will be in County government payroll hence will not be paid according to cases they are handling at a given period of time and this is a great way to save on costs as well as get better services," he said.

Meanwhile, five bills passed by Nakuru County Assembly have been signed into law by Nakuru Governor, Kinuthia Mbugua.

Mbugua, during the signing of the bills, pointed that this was to reinforce residents’ power to seek for accountable and transparent services.

The bills accented into law were; The Vocational and Technical Training Bill, Nakuru County Petition to County Assembly Bill and Agriculture Development Fund Bill.

He also signed into law the Public Entertainment and Amenities Bill and the Vetting and Appointment of Public Officers Bill.

Governor Mbugua urged residents seeking to apply the right to petition law to do so patriotically and avoid witchhunt in its application.

The petition law allows residents to directly seek the County assembly's indulgment on pertinent matters affecting the County in delivery of services to residents.
