2015: “For one year the Assembly was relocated to the former Malindi Municipal Council offices to pave way for renovation and upgrading of the building. It was a challenge for the officers from different departments, who had to share the offices available and to top up MCAs, and physically challenged Members had a problem accessing the Chamber, given the building was not user friendly.
2015: “In any jurisdiction in matters of fairness when you fail to meet the constitutional requirements and when you fail to comply with the natural rules of justice; which demand an accused person be heard and given time to defend him or herself; if you go ahead and deny giving the opportunity to this accused person, then you are being unconstitutional. This is what we are seeing in this scenario; where there is evidence against this person and the Committee is not given the opportunity to hear the other story; they will make judgment based on evidence which has not been heard. I think for purposes of fairness, the Chairperson should tell us how much more time they need. if you fail to give the County Secretary time to hear what was submitted by Japhet Nzaro then you have hidden evidence that he needed to challenge.”
