NAKURU SENATOR ACCUSSES REPS OF SLOWING DEVELOPMENT




Nakuru members of county assembly have been challenged to take up their oversight role and keep the county government on its toes to ensure effective service delivery.
Speaking at Molo town after handing over 100 driving licences to youth groups, Nakuru senator James Mungai said there is need for the MCAs to spearhead laws and policies that will promote development in the county.

The senator observed that the county MCAs have not performed their oversight role to the maximum, a situation that has contributed to the Nakuru county’s slowing development.
“I want to appeal to MCAs in Nakuru and across the country to take their oversight role seriously. The senate will continue to spearhead laws that favour the success of devolution in the country,” he said.

Mungai said devolution must work since its main aim was to ensure people at the grassroots get quality and efficient services.
At the same time Mungai lauded the move by Nakuru East MP David Gikaria and Governor Kinuthia Mbugua to work together.

He said there is need for understanding and tolerance among leaders to ensure progress in Nakuru county development.
