Residents petition Senate to relocate Wamatangi offices to Kiambu.

Analyst Wamalwa displays the petition to compel Kiambu Senator Kimani Wamatangi to open an office at the county headquarters in Kiambu town.

Two residents from Kiambu County have petitioned The Senate to compel Kiambu Senator Kimani Wamatangi to relocate his office from Nairobi to Kiambu Town which is the designated county headquarters.

In their plea to the house, the petitioners claim that the residents of the 12 sub-counties within Kiambu have been inconvenienced for not knowing the location of his office.

“Kiambu citizens who seek the services of the senator are inconvenienced due to the long distance and financial costs involved,” reads the petition that was received and signed by the Clerk to the Senate on March 6.

Quoting Chapter 4 Article 35 (a) of the Kenyan Constitution which gives citizens the right to information, their prayer to Senate is to have the house investigate the criteria or policy framework that can be used to relocate the office of Senator from Nairobi to Kiambu town and in accordance to the said provision, relocate that office to the county headquarters forthwith.

The petition was presented by a resident who refers himself as Analyst Wamalwa.

“For better service delivery the office of the senator should be in his area of representation. His office will come to Kiambu. He was elected to serve not to hide. From 2013 to 2017 no one knew where his office was, that cannot go on to 2022. We will follow up until the office is in Kiambu,” said Wamalwa in his Facebook post yesterday.
