Thirdway Alliance sues Kirinyaga County Assembly over Punguza Mizigo Bill rejection

Thirdway Alliance has moved to court to sue the Kirinyaga County Assembly and its speaker over the rejection of the Punguza Mizigo Bill.

The party led by Dr. Ekuru Aukot claims that the county assembly of Kirinyaga on September 10 used an unlawful process to have the Punguza Mizigo Bill rejected by the Members of County Assembly.

Thirdway alliance argued that,”the respondents breached their constitutional rights and those of Kirinyaga constituents.

The party now wants the court to quash the decision by the Kirinyaga legislative organ and compel the Kirinyaga County Assembly to conduct a public participation exercise on the bill.

They also want the court to issue orders that the Bill be reintroduced in the Assembly within five days for a fresh voting exercise.

The Bill was tabled before the Kirinyaga County Assembly by Majority Leader Kamau Murango who immediately moved a procedural motion to exempt the it from long and tiresome debate procedures.

The motion, however, flopped on a technicality after Murinduko MCA Evans Ndege who was invited to second the Bill declined to do so.
