The Orange Democratic Movement MCAs in Nairobi County  have given Punguza Mzigo Bill presentation at the County Assembly a wide berth saying that the  High Court has stopped the debate on the bill.

Addressing the media at the assembly Minority Whip Peter Imwatok says  the ODM party itself  does not support the bill and that its debate was ceased by the high court.

‘‘I want to say that we did not ask our members not to attend but it is dead on arrival because how can Aukot  tell us in the bill that he wants to reduce the number of wards does he support devolution  really or is just curing economical issues?’’ Imwatok posed.

Meanwhile Aukot  has dismissed the court petition saying his Punguza Mzigo Bill is more lawful than the Building Bridges Initiative that is being driven  by Raila Odinga and the president.

‘‘Those opposing this bill starting with Raila,Kalonzo ,Duale and the team are the ones sponsoring petitions against Punguza Mzigo in courts so that  they can sneak in Ongeza Mzigo..Kenyans must now stand together and reject leaders who are using them  as voting machines to satisfy themselves,’’ Aukot said.

The bill is now facing a hurdle before being introduced in the assembly and Nairobi County Assembly  acting speaker Chege Mwaura says they will have a Kamkunji to  discuss pertinent issues before its debate in the assembly.

In the Punguza Mzigo Bill Aukot  wants Nairobi MCAs reduced from current 85 to 63 a move that  has been met with  stiff opposition  by  the MCAs.
