The Kiambu Jubilee Party nominee Ferdinand Waititu has vowed to review every repressive Kiambu County by-laws passed by the regime of outgoing governor William Kabogo immediately he assumes office after the next general election.
Speaking at Thika Calvary Church during a thanks giving prayer session Waititu pointed out that land by laws introduced by Governor Kabogo’s regime were oppressive and denied the ordinary man an opportunity of self development
In the Kiambu Spatial planning by-laws (2015) the minimum and maximum land holding acreage was stipulated, where land owners of 40 by 80 parcels cannot have their building plans approved, and those who have already developed them will have their developments demolished among many other regulations.
“Kabogo’s infamous by-laws are retrogressive and have pushed a lot of people to poverty, we want an all inclusive government where public participation will be embraced as we do not want to devolve power to a few untouchables at the expense of the majority poor,” the Jubilee party Kiambu gubernatorial nominee said.
Waititu, who was accompanied by his running mate, Dr James Nyoro, members of the Kiambu United Team Daniel Ngare Alias Gakuyo, Aqueline Njoki and Thika MP Alice Ng’ang’a promised the inter-denominational worshippers that his government will ensure that every ordinary Kiambu citizen enjoys the fruits of devolution, which includes the freedom to invest and do business without unnecessary interference from the county government.
He faulted Kabogo’s regime for making it extremely expensive to do business within Kiambu County, where business operating permits were hiked from 3500 to 8500 shillings for small business categories.
Waititu called on Kiambu’s 1.1million registered voters to ensure that they participate in the forth coming general elections to remove bad governance within Kiambu County and to ensure that the Jubilee Government under the leadership of President Uhuru Kenyatta gets a second term.
