Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka has urged governors to foster good working relationship with MCAs to avert impeachment. Speaking yesterday during the launch of Bunge Mashinani in Vihiga County Assembly, Lusaka advised the county bosses to shun chest-thumping and embrace dialogue with the MCAs to address challenges.
Lusaka was reacting to the impeachment of Mike Sonko by the county assembly which was endorsed by the Senate last week.
“What the electorate wants is development and not flexing of muscles between the executive and the county assemblies through impeachments. This should stop and it is only governors who can make this happen by working together with the ward reps,” Lusaka said.

The Speaker noted that some of the issues that have led to impeachment of county bosses can be resolved through dialogue.
He appealed to governors and MCAs to follow the law as they carry out their mandate. Governor Wilber Ottichilo used the occasion to give the annual state of the county address for the financial year 2019/20.
