2 county assembly speakers say MCAs are not to blame for delays in passing bills
MCAs are not to blame for the few number of bills passed by county assemblies, two county speakers have said.
Kitui speaker George Ndoto and his Kakamega counterpart Morris Buluma on Wednesday said the county executives are the main source of bills.
Ndoto said county assemblies only process bills that are generated and forwarded to them by the executive and private members. “The speed of processing bills depends on the relationship between the assemblies and executive,” he said. Ndoto spoke at the Kakamega assembly offices at Kateco Plaza. He said Kitui has passed 18 bills in three years.
Buluma said counties face many challenges, including lack of assembly chambers and staff.
