More headache for Meru Governor Kawira Mwangaza as MCAs reject 7 out of her 10 cabinet nominees
In a move likely to scale up the row pitting the Governor and the County Assembly, the MCAs only approved three of the CECs whose names had been submitted for vetting by the county boss.
The MCA only approved the CECs for Education, Public Service and Finance.
Governor Mwangaza, who is embroiled in a supremacy battle with the MCAs, will now have to go back to the drawing board and submit to the county assembly new names for vetting.
On Monday, however, she appeared ready to eat humble pie after she invited the MCAs for a ceasefire meeting scheduled to take place on Thursday.
The invitation to the meeting came after reconciliation efforts spearheaded by the Council of Governors led by the chairperson Ann Waiguru.
In the letter to the MCAs, Governor Mwangaza said she is ready to discuss the issues raised by ward representatives key among them the ward fund.
"Key among the causes of these misunderstandings is the Ward Fund, an issue that was captured in my maiden speech to the county assembly. I am ready to discuss its management and come up with a workable solution," reads the letter.
