Muguka ban: Governors from Coast region decline State House invite

Governors from the Coast region have declined an invite by President William Ruto to State House to discuss the current Muguka ban and standoff.

Speaking in a joint meeting, the Governors called for more time to engage other elected leaders and launch a public forum before a conclusive finding is reached.

“As Governors of the Coast Counties, we are in receipt of communication from State House inviting us for a meeting to deliberate on the issue of Muguka with our counterparts from Meru, Tharaka Nithi and Embu.

We took the initiative to consult fellow elected leaders from the Coast given that this issue affects the whole of society.

We have resolved to respectfully request State House to engage the entire leadership of the Coast including Senators, MPs and Assembly Leadership exclusively prior to any other sitting.” Said Mombasa Governor Abdulswamad Nassir.

“Rais atabidi kidogo atuwie radhi, kwamba hatutaweza kukutana naye Jumanne hii lakini tutapatana naye baada ya mkutano wetu utakaofanyika Ijumaa wiki ijayo hapa Pwani wa viongozi wote wa Pwani wa kisiasa na wengine wa ngazi tofauti. Baada ya mkutano huo tutakuwa tayari kukutana naye kujadili swala hili linaloikumba jamii yetu.” said Kilifi Governor Gideo Mung’aro.

The meeting which was supposed to include leaders from the four Counties will now leave businesspeople in the trade to wait longer before a lasting solution can be reached.
