In Summary
  • Mr Waititu said the current laws have hurt traders and the construction sector in the county.
  • He said the county has set high fees and levies which people are unable to cope with.
  • He added that his administration will be all-inclusive and will involve all stakeholders when drafting the new laws.
  • Mr Waititu exuded confidence that he will beat Mr Kabogo.

Kiambu Jubilee governorship candidate Ferdinand Waititu has vowed to review all the county laws put in place by incumbent Governor William Kabogo’s administration, saying they are draconian and bad for business.

Mr Waititu said the current laws have hurt traders and the construction sector in the county, adding that residents cannot cope with the high fees and levies that have often led to mass protests.

Addressing journalists after meeting representatives of market traders at Sahara West Hotel at Ruaka, the Kabete MP said if elected in August, his first mission will be to come up with new laws and regulations that will stimulate growth in all sectors in the region.

“We will do away with all laws passed by the current administration so that they can match the level of the local people because our intention is to transform the county by improving [its] economy,” Mr Waititu said.

ALL-INCLUSIVE

He added that his administration will be all-inclusive and will involve all stakeholders when drafting the new laws that will guide his government’s functions.

The new laws, he said, will reflect the will of the people.
