Trans Nzoia County Governor Patrick Khaemba is set to address the Trans Nzoia County assembly tomorrow with all the MCAs drawn from various parties in the County promising to attend the function scheduled to start in the morning.

While speaking to West Media, the Speaker of the County assembly Joshua Werunga said the exercise will start in the morning given that leaders will later rush to prepare for a meeting with President Uhuru Kenyatta who is set to tour the County.

Werunga said among the tasks the MCAs are expected to deal with immediately after the Governor’s address was the presented list of County Executive Members together with chief officers who have applied for positions in various ministries.

Furthermore, he urged residents to inquire and make a follow-up of projects they feel haven’t been set up, saying it’s their role to make sure the projects are finalized.

The Speaker has appealed to residents to turn up and welcome the Head of State when he goes to the County and further urged leaders to shun political confrontations, saying they should present their grievances, if any, to the President in the proper way.

“I urge the leaders to give the President humble time and to present challenges the residents are going through,” he said. He said leaders who don’t support the President’s visit should stay away from his meeting, “If you know you don’t support the coming of President Uhuru Kenyatta who will be touring the County, don’t go to the meeting because it would be useless for you to go to a meeting you ain’t comfortable with,” he affirmed.
