Kitui West MP Edith Nyenze is the latest politician to call for a truce between Governor Charity Ngilu and Members of County Assembly (MCAs).

Nyenze said the ongoing impasse between the governor and MCAs over the supplementary budget is affecting residents.

She said the residents are complaining about lack of services, adding that the situation could be worse if Ngilu and MCAs fail to iron out their political differences. 

Nyenze said some locals are lamenting about delayed services as a result of the impasse. 

“I am urging Governor Ngilu and the MCAs to dialogue in order to save the country from collapsing,” Nyenze said.

She addressed the press in Kitui town on Tuesday.

The Wiper MP said dissolving the county should not be an option, noting that locals stand to suffer in case it reaches to a point of dissolving the county government.

Nyenze urged top leaders in the county to step in and mediate between Ngilu and the MCAs.

Kitui MCAs have refused to approve the supplementary budget, a move that is halting service delivery with county employees lamenting over delayed December salaries.

Ngilu, on the other hand, is accusing the MCAs of allegedly demanding for luxury trips in order to approve the budget.

The MCAs want Ngilu to give a breakdown of how previous budgets have been utilized.
