Nairobi MCAs plotting to shoot down Punguza Mizigo bill

Nairobi County Assembly.

Punguza Mizigo bill from by Thirdway Alliance Party leader Ekuru Aukot is not likely to be approved by Nairobi Assembly.

Both sides of the House have agreed to reject it saying they will not accept the 85 wards combined into just 17 wards.

“There is no one who is normal person who can accept this Punguza Mizigo. There is no way we can reduce constituencies into wards. The MCAs will be reduced to nothing” Minority leader Elias Otieno said.

Minority Whip Peter Imwatok said the ODM side of bunge stance is that the bill is dead on arrival. He said it must be subjected to the 17 sub counties so that they can get the views of the public.

“I do not think that every elected leader in this House irrespective of political stand would agree that Nairobi’s 85 Wards be reduced to17 wards” Imara Daima MCA Kennedy Obuya said.
