Subject: Allegations That MCAS Received Bribes To Block Purchase Of City Buses Budgeted For FY 2013/14

THAT, aware that County Executive Committee Members are state officers bound by Chapter Six of the Constitution of Kenya 2010 and more so Article 75 (1) (c); concerned that the County Executive Committee (CEC) Member for Public Works and Transport Mr. Evans Ondieki recently made allegations in the media imputing improper motives against the Members of the County Assembly ( MCAs) thereby casting aspersions against their integrity and standing against Nairobians, and further alleged that the MCAs were compromised and received bribes in order to block the purchase of city buses that had not been budgeted for in the FY 2013/14; noting that he has gone against the provisions of Section 39 (2) of the County Governments Act 2012, wherein, he has on numerous occasions repeatedly failed to appear before the Sectoral Committee on Transport and Public Works without justifiable reasons and while when he has, has failed to answer questions relating to his responsibilities satisfactorily; further noting that on Tuesday,22nd April,2014, when he appeared before the said Sectoral Committee on Transport and Public Works, he was rude and insulted some members of the County Assembly terming them as hooligans. On the said day, he also incited members of public to picket outside the Assembly in order to intimidate the Committee against carrying out its mandate; aware that on a previous occasion, the said CEC Member asked elected County Assembly Members to bring lists of proposed 5 roads per ward knowing very well that there were no budgetary provisions for the same and to date nothing tangible has come out of the request thereby causing Assembly Members embarrassment; this Assembly resolves that Pursuant to Section 40 of the County Governments Act and Standing Order 62, this Assembly censures the said CEC member for transport and Public Works and resolves that the Governor do dismiss him from office forthwith on grounds of gross misconduct.
