Meru residents Reactions
“There is need of having her out of office if they can’t work together with the MCAs how will they work for the people if it is fight everyday. The solution is if she can’t work with them the should go home.To our MCAs I think they have followed the law and no legal procedure was left unturned.” Meru resident said.
“These fights are too much what I can read is that some of our MCA are maliciously targeting Mwangaza who is a woman. They should be stopped by senate because if this continues then we will be encouraging chauvinism we must protect women for us it is a loss but let that issue be solved once and for all.” Another voter said.
