MCAs condemn media for misreporting on house business

08 September 2016, 00:03

Nairobi - Members of the Nakuru County Assembly have condemned the media for misreporting on the House Businesses concerning crucial bills after reports from a local media indicated that the House had failed to pass crucial bills.

Addressing media led by the House majority leader  MCA  George Mwaura, the MCAs said that the report in the local daily indicating that the house had only passed 3 bills was malicious and based on lies.

“As members of the Nakuru County Assembly we want to condemn a section of the media following the report that the house has failed to pass crucial bills. We want to state here that the report was based on malice and lies since as per now the house has passed 17 bills of which 4 bills are yet to be signed into law.

They called on the media to be factual in their reporting to avoid conflicts in the society adding that the house is ready to perform its role without compromise.  

Visoi  MCA Edward Gitau said it was wrong for a section of the media to publish reports without involving leaders of the county assembly or those concerned.

“Members of the fourth estate should also ensure that they write stories with facts. You cannot just wake up and publish a story without getting your facts right” said Gitau.

His sentiments were echoed by   MCAs Folerence Wambui Njoroge of Elburgon, Eunice Wambui Muriithi of  Viwandani Naivasha and Jane Ngugi of Gilgil town.

They said they will live to defend the women agenda in the county assembly and urged women in Nakuru not to shy away from  elective positions in the forth coming  general elections.

On the issue of lack of quorum in the house leaeding to most businnesses not transacted, Majority Leader George Mwaura said the house is facing a challenge since most of the committee members are on field work.

He also noted that there has been a shift in leadership of the house committees but noted that this will be sorted out in due course.
