Members of the public turned away by security officers
Administration police officers manning the entrance of Isiolo County Assembly and Governor’s office are turning away members of the public who want to see their representatives.
A female officer armed with G3 rifle turned away members of the public and a KNA reporter saying any visitor would only be allowed in the building when accompanied by County assembly staff or on confirmed appointment.
The reporter had gone to investigate the strict entry rules after public outcry that security officers denied members of the public access to their respective Members of County Assembly(MCAs).
However chief of staff Mr. Mohamed Boru said that the gates were manned by County Assembly security officers and he is not aware of any harassment.
Mr. Boru further added that his office and that of the Governor would soon move to a new building and urged wananchi to be patient.
Speaking to KNA Mr. Adan Jattani from Kinna ward said that he had an appointment with his MCA and the security officer had refused to allow him in for the last 4 days.
Mr. Jattani said that the current system was not helping in the provision of services required and urged Governor Dr. Mohamed Kuti to stick to his campaign pledge of open door policy.
