Former Vice President Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka has offered to mediate between Members of Parliament and the Senators to resolve the financial crisis in Counties after the two houses failed to agree on the Division of Revenue Bill.
The Wiper Democratic Movement-Kenya Leader said he is ready to reconcile the two and agree on a figure that will break the stalemate.
His move is an attempt to resolve the impasse after the National Assembly passed the Division of Revenue Bill allocating Ksh.316 billion to the county governments just two days after the Senate passed its version of the Division of Revenue Bill allocating counties Ksh.335 billion.
Governors on their part moved to court to force Members of Parliament to rescind their decision. But Chief Justice David Maraga was for the view that the matter be resolved through mediation between representatives of the two houses.
And Kalonzo who spoke at Wiper Headquarters in Nairobi where he was the Chief guest during the unveiling of the officials of Young Wiper Democrats (YWDs) echoed CJ’s proposals and offered to spearhead the reconciliation talks.
Today as we unveiled the Young Wiper Democrat’s (YWD), the Youth wing of the Wiper Democratic Movement-Kenya.
“Our Movement believes in young leaders and today we have given them the power to reach out to every corner of this Republic. God Bless you YWD”, Kalonzo posted on his Facebook page.
Officials of the YWDs include Majala Mlagui (Chairperson), Mbula Mutula (Secretary General), Nacy Okademi (Treasurer) and Vinesh Varsani (Vice Treasurer).
They announced to tour different parts of the country to sensitize the young democrats on their key role in the country’s democratic process a head of 2022 general elections.
