Former Mayor slams at MCAs over Chicken Bill

Former Nakuru Mayor Benson Mwangi has slammed at Nakuru County Assembly MCAs over the tabled Bill that if passed will see those rearing chicken in Nakuru without permit being fined 500,000 shillings.
Addressing media in Nakuru on Thursday, the former mayor said the bill if passed will be a big blow to Nakuru residents terming the fine unbearable.
“The county assembly of Nakuru can pass more bills that are paramount, but we see them passing as bills is unbearable. How can you put high penalty on Kenyans through some bills?I want to call on them to amend the bill before it is passed” he said.
The controversial bill is now at the county Assembly for debate and public views on whether it should be amended or passed the way it is.
Meanwhile, the former Nakuru Mayor has lauded the National Cohesion and integration commission NCIC for the step they have taken to work closely with the anti-corruption agency as well as the IEBC to ensure stiff measures against rogue and hate speech propagators.
According NCIC, such politicians will not be allowed to vie any elective seat, a step that former Nakuru Mayor Mwangi who has an interest to vie for the Nakuru Town East parliamentary seat says he supports as this will ensure chapter 6 of the Constitution is respected.
“On that I support a hundred percent as this will help this nation have quality leaders who respect chapter 6 of the constitution” he said.
He was addressing media after meeting with various youth groups in Nakuru Town East to chat way forward on youth empowerment programs.
