The Kwale County Assembly has become the 10th regional House to adopt a proposal by the opposition Nasa to set up a people’s assembly.

The motion was introduced Wednesday by Majority Leader who is also the Mwavumbo Ward MCA Joseph Ndeme.

Mr Ndeme hailed the proposed people’s assembly, saying it will propel development and reinforce concrete measures for the promotion of inclusivity and the welfare of marginalised communities.

"The people's assembly forums will help the citizens have a bigger role in safeguarding devolution, promoting equity and fairness in the distribution of resources and reforming public institutions," he said.

POLITICAL DESTINY

Mr Ndeme added that the assembly will give Kwale residents an opportunity to discuss other contentious issues regarding the way they will be governed as well as decide their political destiny.

Similar sentiments were echoed by Puma MCA Dawa Ngome who said the adoption of the people’s assembly would address the challenges facing residents of the county and other marginalised communities.
