Lusaka Warns CECs Over Conflict With Assembly Members

Bungoma governor Kenneth Lusaka has issued a stern warning to his county ministers who were out to sabotage his cordial working relationship with members of the county assembly.

Lusaka warned that he will not tolerate any officer who will undermine the assembly leadership. Speaking at Kibabii University when he launched the County Integrated Plan (CIDP), Lusaka told his County Executive Committee (CEC) members to respect MCAs or ship out of his administration “We have been working well with the assembly leadership, so it will not be business as usual if I find you trying to create rifts amongst us,” said Lusaka.

The governor was reacting to complaints from MCAs that some of his CECs were too bossy and lack respect for them.

“Governor, there are some of your chief officers who are sabotaging your leadership by undermining us,” said Meshack Museveni of Mukuyuni ward.
He threatened to name the officers in public fora if the governor was not going to move swiftly and put his house in order.

ngoma “I can’t mention their names today but I will do it in other fora if they don’t change,” said Museveni.
Lusaka promised the MCAs that their good working relationship will continue as he was going to put his house in order.

“I am going to do housekeeping and I am assuring you we shall continue having that good relationship,” Lusaka promised.

He said the CIDP will enable him fulfil the campaign pledges he made to Bungoma residents.
