Kirinyaga County Assembly closed, MCAs to self-isolate due to COVID-19 scare

The County Assembly of Kirinyaga has been closed for 21 days until Monday September 14, 2020 when the House is expected to resume operations.

Kamau Aindi, clerk of the county assembly, in a memo seen by Citizen Digital urged the MCAs to self-isolate for the next three weeks and strictly adhere by the COVID-19 guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health.

This comes after mass testing was on Wednesday last week carried out but a large number of MCAs skipped the exercise. All assembly staff and a few MCAs were tested but their results have since not been disclosed.

Covid KirinyagaMr. Aindi, in his memo, requested MCAs who did not take the test and would be willing to do so to liaise with the office of the Director, HR and Administration, Leah Ireri to be facilitated.

“We assure you of our support during this time and will keep all of us updated with any relevant information,” said the clerk.

Angry MCAs however said the County Assembly Speaker was supposed to call for a meeting before shutting down the House, thereby reading mischief in the move.

“I can read politics here, It is pure politics,” said one ward representative who declined to be named.
