Six Murang’a MCAs record statements over Assembly fracas

One of my officers was also assaulted during the fracas

Six Murang’a MCAs have recorded statements following the chaos that broke out at Murang’a County Assembly last Tuesday, leading to the destruction of property in the office of the Assembly speaker and that of the clerk.

The six who were joined by their colleagues matched to the Murang’a police station singing freedom songs.

They later proceeded to Murang’a County Assembly to hold a meeting but unfortunately, all the chambers and meeting rooms were locked by the assembly management, prompting them to call for a presser at the assembly.

They castigated what they termed as massive corruption and awarding of tenders to the family members of the top assembly management leadership and failure to pay bills.

The MCAs also lamented nepotism and intimidation through such acts of being summoned to the police station and failure by the management to remit their allowances and intentional delay of their monthly salaries.

In a statement read by Muguru ward MCA Moses Muchiri, the MCAs demanded that the clerk to the assembly Wilson Kuria and the Speaker Johnson Mukuha be suspended for 60 days to pave the way for investigations.

They also demanded that the two embattled assembly board members Simon Wamwea and Elizabeth Wambui who were impeached by the MCAs but reinstated to the service board through the court orders be replaced by Carolyne Njoroge and Kenneth Kamau.

Murang’a governor Irungu Kang’ata is yet to issue a statement regarding the assembly wars.
