Governor Mwangaza Vows to Pray for MCAs to Oust Evil Spirits
After a feud ensued between Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza and the County’s MCAs at the county assembly, the governor has vowed to pray for the MCAs, claiming they were possessed by evil spirits.
“Seeing how they are talking, these MCAs might have some evil spirits. As a Bishop, I will pray for them” Said Kawira.
Kawira Mwangaza had earlier scheduled a meeting with the MCAs for the official opening of the county assembly. However, upon arriving at the chambers of the house, the MCAs stormed out. The county legislators are arguing that the governor has not discussed with them some various issues that would like to sport out.
They are also demanding an audience with the governor to establish a working formula between them in order to run the county affairs smoothly. But Kawuira in turn claims that everything is running as it should and she will not bow down to the pressure.
Mwangaza said that her work as a governor is to tour the county launching projects and conduct public participation and not to sit down with the MCAs to discuss non-issues.
However, the MCAs have vowed not to step into the house and follow the proceedings until their demands are met. Even as they wait, other counties are still conducting their first meetings while others are scheduled. Some counties have already concluded the process and started implementing bills and policies.
Nairobi City County Governor Johnson Sakaja scheduled the initial meeting for the county assembly on Wednesday 19 October at 2.30 pm. The Governor officially participated in the official opening of the assembly and conducted its first sitting.
He has vowed to with and for the people by applying the bottom-up model of the UDA party. He has already scheduled public participation on the issues of informal trade within the busy Nairobi CBD.
Other governors are still appointing and witnessing the swearing-in of County Executives members as stipulated in the constitution.
