The county assembly members have recently developed a reputation for being intimidating, with most governors facing the threat of impeachment or having already been removed from office by the senate or the courts.
The most recent county chief to have a problem with his MCAs, who are crucial to passing various laws to allow him to carry out his mandate, is Kiambu Governor Kimani Wamatangi.
On Thursday morning, the governor refuted a number of charges brought against him by the MCAs.
One of the accusations was that he had declined to give their wards any bursaries in order to help the less fortunate leaners.
Wamatangi rejected the allegations, claiming that he can't avoid awarding bursaries and that his only concern is equity.
Regarding the claim that I have withheld bursaries, a Governor cannot withhold bursaries; they must be distributed equally, stated Wamatangi.
Le dama ole kina, a senator from Narock who was also a panelist, tried to give the governor advice on how to get along with MCAs and prevent conflict.
He advised Wamatangi to develop a five-year plan, divide it into yearly plans, include a variety of projects, and share it with MCAs so they can provide feedback.
The senator promised to draft legislation on impeachment because he felt sorry for the governors who are always powerless to stop the MCAs from raising hell.
