Khalaba MCA, Hon. Majimbo Okumu ~ Chairman, committee on Public Administration and ICT

The long serving and therefore experienced legislator was invited to Sulwe FM morning talks how dabbed Endekhelo on Thursday, 29 April 2021 to address issues primarily as the Chair to the County Assembly Committee on Public Administration. Top on the agenda was governor Wycliffe Wangamati’s utterances on number of issues while on the same show a few days ago.

Here is a collection of quotes made by Hon. Majimbo, arguably the face of oversight in Bungoma;

 

“Our work is to provide oversight. With oversight, we are interested in COMPLIANCE. Get me clearly.”
“The governor requested me to give him lessons on how to survive around as a leader. He admitted that he has been learning some things the hard way. He has however turned down my lessons, decided to ignore everything.”
“The governor has no powers to hire anyone. The powers are vested in the CPSB. His pronouncements should not be taken seriously. See, the summoned members of the PSB to a Kisumu hotel and threatened them to act according to his will or face the music.”
“The governor already gave out the names of the people he wants recruited as village administrators “
Advert; Khetia’s offer – until 8th may 2021
“It’s unfortunate to start engaging with a CECM over the radio. Am quoting the law & am disinterested in engaging the CECM over nothing. Makanda kandusiekho kumunwa, am not his age mate”
“We legislated the village units in 2015. Boundary delimitation was however left pending no wonder former governor didn’t employ village admins, delimitation is to happen after 8 years meaning – a task force has to do delimitation of boundaries in 2023”
“The current county executive doesn’t take our advice seriously. It should be known that MCAs have no intention to frustrate anyone – that’s not our business.”
“A task force put in place to do boundary delimitation by governor Wangamati in 2018 is illegal under Bungoma County decentralized units. The governor ignored our recommendations to repeal some of our laws.”
“Two things – boundary delimitation & budgetary allocation are the two obstacles to hiring of village admins.”
“East Sang’alo ward for instance, Khaweli & Mutomolo, there is an issue with boundaries. We can’t hire Village admins when such complains are all over.”
“As we speak, we have discussed many times without a number with omwami Sabwami about these things – it’s only that they can’t listen to us. Our policy is to look at the compliance – the executive is rigid, see the governor’s sentiments,he isn’t ready for a sit down with MCAs. “
“Our work is to provide oversight. With oversight, we are interested in COMPLIANCE. Get me clearly.”
“We must follow the law,if the governor however wants to do things kienyeji way,let him do it at his own home not with official matters of the county.”
Advert; Club Silk, Bungoma
“Any hiring of village admins without boundary delimitation & budgetary allocation is illegal. Period.”
“The governor has no powers to hire anyone. The powers are vested in the CPSB. His pronouncements should not be taken seriously. See, he summoned members of the CPSB to a Kisumu hotel and threatened them to act according to his will or face the music.”
“The governor requested me to give him lessons on how to survive around as a leader. He admitted that he has been learning some things the hard way. He has however turned down my lessons, decided to ignore everything.”
“We have information that after the intimidating Kisumu meeting with Service board, they were given names earmarked to be hired as village admins. We have summoned the chair to appear before the committee.”
“We have summoned both the governor & the CEO of Service board to appear before us. What do they know about hiring of village admins that we don’t know?”
“The governor already gave out the names of the people he wants recruited as village administrators “
“On 4th, both should appear before us under Section 191 of the constitution. They should come in PERSON. The governor must appear in person to shed more light on what he is telling People. The governor has a choice to make – either to appear in person or not. There are steps to be taken thereafter.”
“It’s unfortunate to start engaging with a CECM over the radio. Am quoting the law & am disinterested in engaging the CECM over nothing. Makanda kandusiekho kumunwa,am not his age mate”
“The likes of Waziri Makanda are the ones not helping the governor,if anything,they are the ones bringing the governor down. He should count himself lucky I replied to his question,it wasn’t worth my reply. They are yes sir fellows.”
“We are engaging the governor on Tuesday next week on 4th. Let him swallow his pride & come we deliberate on this issue. We shall address the press thereafter.”
“Am DARING the governor to go ahead with his threats on Car grant. This was an order from H .E the president to convert the loan from a revolving fund to a car grant. The governor is neither here nor there on matters car grant. When Mps get car grants,we never make noise – we are engaged in the same duties as the Mps. Who is governor Wangamati to contradict H.E the President of the republic of Kenya? I dare him to carry on!”
On Joram – I don’t like talking about my colleagues but – Joram is an absentee MCA in the assembly,he knows nothing in the assembly – he doesn’t know anything – he is among the members of the governor’s praise & worship team. He is a yes man of the governor – I wish omwami Elima be elected next time – he hardly spent 5 minutes int the assembly.”
“Whether the governor comes or not,we shall follow the law.”
“The governor will tell us why ECDE teachers won’t be interviewed due to corona while he wants village admins interviewed. He will tell us while appearing before us next week. Let’s not be fire fighters, let’s be fire preventers.”
“It’s a fallacy that car grant was meant to corrupt MCAs to support BBI. MCAs are entitled to car grants.”
Advert: MCee The Edger
“You can’t tell us we have a different BBI document when we don’t have the other. See, unless you show us the correct BBI document, you can’t tell us that we have a wrong BBI document. According to us – we received a correct BBI document from IEBC.”
Seems the governor’s CECs are confused. The car grant came from the revolving fund and nowhere else.
According to me, Governor Wangamati is an average student. Let him come on Tuesday I continue teaching him – I haven’t given up on him yet, he is still young. The governor needs the County Assembly, let him not listen to Chirasha Makandas of this world.
“The difference is – Omwami LUSAKA understood the oversight role of the assembly. Governor Wangamati is adamant. That’s the difference. Change of County assembly leadership brought about VIBRANCE- kuchapa Kazi.”
“Bukembe East MCA Hon. Jorum makes 5-minute technical appearances in the assembly… He lives in khalaba ward , Pamus area… Follows Governor everywhere instead of doing his oversight role”
