Makueni MPs want Governor Kivutha Kibwana to resign over Assembly fire

11 March 2016, 08:07 Arap Yego

Nairobi - Two legislators from Makueni County want Governor Kivutha Kibwana to step aside for abdicating his responsibility of safeguarding public property.

The MPs Kisoi Munyao (Mbooni) and Richard Makenga (Kaiti) said the Governor's own admission that he knew about an imminent arson attack on the County government offices beforehand but failed to alert authorities is prove enough that he is incompetent.

Part of the Makueni County Assembly office was reduced to ashes in the early Monday morning incident. The fierce fire gutted the County assembly chambers, offices of the Speaker and the Clerk, a boardroom and adjacent offices.

Governor Kibwana on Wednesday while touring the scene of the fire incident told journalists that he had shared information about the planned attack with County Assembly Speaker Stephen Ngelu via a text message.

Prof Kibwana further blamed the speaker for not responding to his alarm in time.

But Speaking Thursday at a press conference in Parliament, the MPs wondered why the Governor chose not to share the vital information with police.

"Why should a custodian of public interest of Makueni choose to treat such crucial information casually? Why did he deliberately deny investigation agencies this information that would have otherwise been used to avert enormous losses?" posed Munyao.

He observed that Governnor Kibwana act portrays a gross incompetence on his part as the County boss, as he acted irresponsibly and abdicated his fundamental responsibility of guarding public resources.

"We strongly feel the Governor should take responsibility and voluntarily resign and pave way for responsible, committed and a competent person who will will give a new lease of hope and life to our County,"explained Munyao.

Makenga on his part asked the Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett to ensure that whoever is behind the fire incident is brought to book.

"We demand that the police boss acts accordingly without fear by commencing investigations," he said.
