MCAs dismisses claims that they leased out game parks

09 March 2016, 12:09 Joseph Njung'eh

Isiolo - Isiolo Members of County Assembly have denied a report alleging that the local County Government intends to lease out two game reserves to African Parks Network (APN) group.

The MCAs want the Tourism Executive, Suleiman Shunu to appear before the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) and the Public Investment Committee (PIC) to clarify on the alleged contractual agreement between the two parties.

The members termed the report as sloppy, contradictory and one that lacks details of the purported meetings with the APN business group and Isiolo County Government.

Majority leader, Adan Ali Wako said the Assembly was not satisfied with the report presented by Shunu last week claiming that the revenue indicated in his statement was that of the former County council.

The MCAs said the report should entail the true position regarding the Buffalo Springs and Shaba National Game Reserves, the reason for seeking partnership with African Parks Network, challenges faced and clarification of rumours about impending leasing of the two game sanctuaries.

Ngaremara MCA, Peter Losu said the report presented in the house responded to the rumours but not satisfactorily.

Sericho MCA, Nura Diba said the report was confusing the house since it branded the APN as a Non-Profit organization yet the County government wants to establish a Public Private Partnership with it.

However, Shunu said the report is not shoddy and the MCAs should seek clarifications before drawing conclusions.

He said he was ready to face the respective committees to answer all questions surrounding the alleged deal.
