Deputy Governor dismisses MPs demands for a leaders' meeting

By Osinde Obare | June 22nd 2015

Trans Nzoia County Deputy Governor Stanley Tarus has dismissed an ultimatum by area leaders demanding that Governor Patrick Khaemba convene a leaders' forum.

The MPs Chris Wamalwa (Kiminini), David Lazaro (Saboti), Ferdinand Wanyonyi (Kwanza) and Wesley Korir (Cherangany) and nominated Senators Zipporah Kittony and Catherine Mukite on Friday gave Governor Khaemba four days to call a leaders' meeting or face unspecified consequences.

"We have given the governor four days to convene a leaders' meeting. We will discuss various emerging issues in our county," said Dr. Wamalwa during a press conference held in Nairobi.

Yesterday, Dr. Tarus termed as unacceptable leaders threatening the county chief with an impeachment motion, over allegations that he has failed to convene a leaders' meeting.

He accused the MPs of failing to show up at functions organised by the county administration.

"It's surprising that the MPs have started threatening county leaders. What Trans Nzoia needs is leaders who will unite all people, not those who threaten others," he said.

Tarus claimed those fighting the county government are panicking after the launch of different development projects, including an initiative to distribute title deeds to land owners.

"We are now helping our people to get title deeds. Because the issue has been used for many years as a tool to get into political positions, they are now left with impeachment threats," he said.
