Mombasa County Assembly is once again on the receiving end accused of total failure in playing it’s oversight roles properly.
The Assembly has been termed as a ‘rubber stamp’ for the executive with most of it’s members lacking clear understanding of their roles as stipulated in the constitution.
Mvita constituency political activist Said Twaha said apart from only 7 Members of the Assembly, led by Freere Town Ward Representative Charles Kitula, the rest remains a ‘Yes’ flock that only agrees to whatever order given to them by the executive.
“These representatives are working in fear that if they oppose the executive they will be expunged from various house committees thus risking their allowances,” noted Twaha.
He said Mombasa County Assembly lacks the authority thus making Mombasa dwellers to ignore any businesses undertaken by the assembly.
“It think it’s time Mombasa youth get prepared to clean the whole assembly come 2022 general polls not Mr. Twaha
In an interview with journalists on Saturday, Twaha who has expressed his interest to take over from the current Mvita MP Abdulswamad Sharif Nassir said Mombasa has very vibrant youth who can lead the county from the grassroots level to the top.
Meanwhile, Twaha has rubbished the Constitution Amendment Bill 2020, famously known as the Building Bridges Initiative-BBI.
He said the initiative is only for few individuals and not for Kenyans.
Twaha said there is nothing tangible in the BBI since all the BBI aspects are already enshrined in the constitution.
“We all know that Mombasa MCA’s have been instructed to pass the BBI in fact the planned public participation lacks any importance to us as Mombasa dwellers. It’s only a political gimmick,” he said.
He appealed to Mombasa residents to ignore the BBI initiative and strongly reject it.
“As Kenyans let’s jelously defend the constitution and fight for its full implementation and crush BBI,” said the politician.
