, NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 15 – Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi has cancelled a week-long induction for Members of the County Assembly that was set to be held in Mombasa.
Elachi stated that it beat logic for the 122 members to travel to Mombasa to learn the basics of the chamber and its proceedings in a hotel yet they would be carrying out business at the Nairobi County Assembly.
Following the change of plans, the induction has been going on at City Hall.
The Assembly will have a busy schedule when it convenes, with the leaders having to pass the Appropriations Bill that will authorise the governor to withdraw cash for development projects.
The members are also expected to amend the Finance Act, which determines the rates paid by residents.
This will be done in a bid to realise Governor Mike Sonko’s vision to lower some fees in accordance with his campaign promises.
