He further said the activities around the creation of new boundaries should stop until the county assembly members, members of Parliaments from the area, the public and other key stakeholders from the county are consulted in some well-coordinated public participation forums.

He also shared the same document in the burial ceremony of the late father of kenyan Ambassador to Pakistan professor Julius Bittok.(Courtesy photo)
