The renovation of the defunct Mwingi County Council Building was meant to facilitate the construction of a new office block at the County Assembly of Kitui.

In a press released dated March 3, 2022, the Supplementary Budget debate forced MCAs to burn the midnight oil to have the report ready. “This during an additional sitting that spilled late into Wednesday night” reads the press release in part.

The amendment was sponsored by Mbitini ward MCA Nicholas Mwalali. It was seconded by his Township ward counterpart Antony Ndooh.

The motion received surmountable support from several ward representatives. They included MCA Nelson Kivali of Voo/Kyamatu ward and David Thuvi (Kithumula/Kwa Mutonga).

Others who backed the motion include James Munuve (Kanziku Ward) and Stephen Musili (Kyuso Ward).

While backing the motion, Thuvi said that the House had earlier on passed a motion to effect Bunge Mashinani and start with Mwingi Town. Since there is a motion in place, it’s high time we implement it so as to benefit our brothers and sisters in Mwingi Town,” he said.

Kisasi MCA Emeritus Kasee rejected the motion saying that although the proposals are very good, they had been overtaken by time.
