Nyamira MCAs clash over construction of roads leading to their homes

In Summary

  • Itibo Ward MCA Samuel Nyanchama insisted that due to the terrains in various parts of the county, the lawmakers are unable to reach to their homes with their vehicles.
  • He therefore proposed that funds be secured to have the roads leading to MCAs residences improved.
  • A section of the legislators, however, strongly differed saying that their colleagues were forgetting the common mwananchi.

Nyamira Members of County Assembly on Tuesday clashed over a motion to set aside funds for the repair and maintenance of roads leading to their homes.

The motion was moved to the floor of the House by Itibo Ward MCA Samuel Nyanchama who insisted that due to the terrains in various parts of the county, the lawmakers are unable to reach to their homes with their vehicles. He therefore proposed that funds be secured to have the roads leading to MCAs residences improved.

His utterances were supported by Bomwagamo MCA Charles Barongo and Bokeira ward MCA Carren Atuya who said it’s in order for an emergency kit be set aside for the same purpose.

However, a section of the legislators among them Ekerenyo Ward MCA Thaddeus Nyabaro, nominated MCA Hyline Sese and Robinson Mocheche of Bonyamatuta ward strongly differed saying that their colleagues were forgetting the common mwananchi.

The Assembly Speaker Moffat Teya directed the Committee on Roads to look into the viability of the motion and present a report to the house in 21 days.
