Illegally nominated councilors to be de-gazetted

Illegally nominated councilors to be de-gazetted

Deputy Prime Minister and Local Government Minister Musalia Mudavadi says all illegally nominated councilors will soon be de-gazetted.

Mudavadi noted the law had been broken prompting his Ministry to form a committee to investigate all the 175 councils in the country, to establish the exact number of excess councilors.

Speaking to Kenya Broadcasting Corporation -KBC-, the Minister said the councils were indebted to the tune of 13 billion shillings, with the additional councilors and employees burdening them further.

He further added that his ministry is carrying out reforms to improve service delivery and a bill would be drafted soon to amend the local authorities act .
