Nyandarua Speaker Backs Handshake  

Counties Laikipia

Nyandarua Speaker, Ndegwa Wahome has promised to publicize the content of agreement signed between leaders to end the political wars that had dogged the County in the past three months.


Speaking  during the launch of a VCD by gospel artiste, Rachel Peter at Ndogino PCEA church in Ndaragwa Sub County, Nyandarua County, Ndegwa said the “handshake” did not favour leaders but outlined how the residents of the County were going to get services.


“When the agreement document is tabled in the County Assembly, its copies will be made available to you (residents) through social media, press and churches so that you can know what it contains,” the Speaker said.


The Speaker said the conflict witnessed in the County was due to leaders differing on separation of powers.


Also at the event, Nyandarua Woman Rep, Faith Gitau called on residents to pray for the leaders in the County to maintain peace and concentrate on working for the people.


Kariuki Muchiri of Murungaru ward, said Nyandarua people expect to see a lot of work going on in the County following the handshake.


“There is no reason why people should not see a lot of work going on in the County now that there is no fighting among leaders,” Muchiri said.


The veteran leader said despite the handshake “the assembly will continue playing its role of ensuring safety of public resources.”


Karau ward MCA, Ken Mukira warned that the fights in the County will recur if the content of the handshake is not respected.


Mukira who was deputy leader of majority will now be chairman of inter-governmental relations committee following the handshake, warned “Expect recurrence of the fights if things don’t go right,”  saying the assembly will not tolerate misuse of public funds.
