Senators have been urged to play their oversight role of counties in accordance with the law and to avoid witch hunt and victimisation of governors.
Speaking during the opening of an induction workshop at Simba Lodge in Naivasha, Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka said members of the previous House abused their positions and engaged in all manner of allegations against county bosses.
Mr Lusaka said the first Senate was characterised by supremacy battles between senators and some of the governors who were accused of mismanaging county funds.
The House Speaker called on members to ensure that the Senate clearly and strictly demarcates boundaries of its oversight role and the county assemblies over the county executives.
“In the past, we have had some audit queries that were supposed to be dealt with at the county assembly brought to the Senate. Overlapping and duplication of roles serves no purpose, but simply creates confusion and wastage of public funds,” Mr Lusaka said.
The senators will be attending the induction workshop the whole of this week.
