Nairobi,KENYA:The government has condemned the act of violence witnessed by some of the Members of the county assembly in Muranga and Taita Taveta.
While addressing journalists in Nairobi, government spokesman Eric Kiraithe alluded that the recent behavior served to dilute the importance role county assemblies play in formulating the rule of law.
The government spokesman added that MCs are bound  to conduct their affairs in a  manner that promotes public confidence in the county assemblies and dignity to the office.
” Attention of the government has been drawn to a number of incidents widely reported in the media showing member of county assemblies engaging in physical confrontation while purportedly conducting county assembly business and in other public places” Said Kiraithe.
” They should not only conduct themselves with decorum but demonstrate sensitivity to law and order. The normal rules of restraint expected of government officials in all walks of life should be replicated in the country assemblies”  He added
On the 15th of January, 15 members of Nairobi county assembly were also thrown out of a flight after proving themselves to be incapable of complying with basic aviation safety and security requirements at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
