MPs walk out of Cabinet Secretary's meeting

30 January 2016, 19:38 Mohammed Yusuf

Voi - It was drama in the Governor's boardroom in Wundanyi Taita Taveta County as two MPs walked out of Environment Cabinet Secretary’s public meeting.

The legislators were demanding that Judy Wakhungu address the issue of human wildlife conflict, but Prof. Wakhungu insisted that she was in the area to deliberate on issues affecting forestry.

Wundanyi Mp, Thomas Mwandeghu with his voi counterpart, Jones Mlolwa lamented the increased human wildlife that has left many residents languishing in abject poverty from destruction of food crops.

The legislators claimed that the government has remained reluctant in fencing the entire Tsavo National park to drive all the elephants back to the park.

Mwandeghu further put the National government to blame saying it allowed livestock to graze in the park thus pushing wildlife into the community land.

The duo however found it unfit to sit in Wakhungu's meeting talking about forests while human-wildlife conflict remained unresolved, and walked out of the meeting. They claimed that Taita Taveta residents have not received compensation despite incurring big losses.

The chairman of Kenya forest service Peter Kirigua accused the leaders for misbehaving in front of the CS and PS referring to the act as a bad show of leadership.

Days ago, Taita taveta  Governor Hon. John Murutu, Mwatate Mp Hon. Andrew Mwadime, Voi Mp Jones Mlowa and MCAs stormed KWS community officers in voi and closed their gate accusing the office of failing to accord help to the community.

The cabinet secretary was attending a hand-over meeting of the forests which were managed by national government as a transition implementation plan since the process of devolving forestry functions began in 2014.
