‘Penniless’ Nakuru MCAs refuse to go on recess

Nakuru MCAs have refused to go on recess, saying they are broke.

The ward representatives are also unhappy with rules and regulations governing the disbursement of car and mortgage loans and want to amend them before they can take the long holiday break.

The MCAs were required to break on Thursday for the long December holiday in line with the county assembly calendar.

They were to go for two months and resume on February 13, 2018.

Surprisingly, when the motion of adjournment was moved by the Leader of Majority Stanley Karanja, they declined to support it and instead made a string of demands.

They said they were not ready to proceed for a moneyless recess and insisted on staying on longer to hold committee sittings where they can draw allowances and pass laws that will enable them get car and mortgage loans without security.

The MCAs want the Sh2 million car loan and Sh3 million mortgage loan to be immediately disbursed.
