Interior CS D. Fred Matiangi has been urged to step in and end the wrangles in the Nyamira’s County Assembly.

Addressing journalists in Nyamira town on Sunday, 18 April, the chair for Political Parties Liaison Committee (PPLC) Evans Misati termed the wrangles and wars at the Assembly as a shame to the Gusii community and a sign of immaturity among the leaders.

Misati who unsuccessfully ran for the County’s gubernatorial seat in 2013, warned the Members of County Assembly (MCAs) that the electorate was closely watching the events taking place and will soon act accordingly.

“CS Matiangi needs to make a quick decision and stand as a unifying factor to end the current stalemate and thereby recommend that he convenes an urgent meeting with key County leadership to end the row before it gets out if hand,” PPLC Chairman recommended.

Personal interests

“I want to urge all Nyamira County residents, both young and the old
to raise up to the occasion and protect our county from such leaders who fight in public for personal interest gains,” Misati appealed.

“MCA’s who have been engaging in politics of personal gain since the death of Governor Nyagarama have made our county lag behind in terms of development.

As a county we must stand our ground and condemn in the strongest terms possible this behaviour of our MCA's,” Misati warned.

Trouble begun at the Nyamira County Assembly when the County Assembly’s Committee on Selection chaired by Speaker Moffat Teya rejected the nomination of ex-West Mugirango MP Dr James Gesami as Nyamira’s deputy Governor over what they termed as failure to meet integrity minimum requirements, something that has divided the County assembly since then.
