At­tend ses­sions or be named, shamed, Bomet MCAs told

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Bomet MCAs who skip house sit­tings will be named and shamed on the county’s web­site, speaker Ge­of­frey Kip­ngetich(pic­tured) said yes­ter­day.

He said many MCAs skip ses­sions for no good rea­son. Kip­ngetich said an at­ten­dance list for the last three years will be pub­lished.

“The only way we can make mem­bers se­ri­ous about their du­ties is by crack­ing the whip. The pub­lic can have a look at the list. We will no longer entertain mem­bers who dodge ses­sions,” he said.

Kip­ngetich said many MCAs skip ses­sions to at­tend to “pri­vate mis­sions” with­out re­gard for the house stand­ing or­ders.

The Bomet as­sem­bly amended its stand­ing or­ders and changed sit­tings from three times a week to two con­sec­u­tive days – Tues­days and Wed­nes­days ev­ery week.

Kip­ngetich told MCAs they are du­ty­bound to at­tend to all house busi­ness, in­clud­ing com­mit­tee meet­ings.

“History will judge you harshly if you fail to achieve set tar­gets. This is the first as­sem­bly un­der the new con­sti­tu­tion,” he said.
