Meru MCAs end tussle with Governor Mwangaza
This comes after a meeting summoned by controller of budget Dr.Margaret Nyakong'o on Friday where the MCAs were informed that the ward fund is illegal.
They were instead promised they will have equitable distribution of ward development projects which will be identified through the County Integrated Development Plan (CIDP) or Annual Development Plan (ADP).
The MCAs also said that they have ironed out the disputes between them and Governor Mwangaza and they are ready to work within the strict guidelines of the law.
However, they noted that any disputes that may arise should be directly addressed to the county boss and not to them.
"The governor said that she is responsible for identifying projects across the county. We now want to tell the people of Meru that if there's a bad road, call the governor, if you need a bursary, make a call to the governor,” said Meru County Assembly Speaker Ayub Bundi.
“The MCAs have been stripped of any power to identify development projects."
They have asked governor Mwangaza to present a Supplementary Budget to the Assembly in the shortest time possible to allow immediate implementation of community projects.
The Senate Deputy Speaker and Meru Senator Kathuri Murungi welcomed the move saying the MCAs will now stick to their oversight role.
