The Trans Nzoia County Assembly has been ranked number two out of 47 in terms of performance evident from acts and bills legislated.
The rating was done by the County Assemblies Forum (CAF), which placed Garissa County Assembly first.
Speaking during the adjournment of its sittings on Thursday that marked the end of the Second Assembly, outgoing Leader of the Majority, Patrick Kisiero, said the Assembly had tabled 168 questions, most of which had received feedback from the executive.
Kisiero revealed that the Assembly had adopted 46 motions, out of which 28 were communicated to the executive for implementation, while 18 were returned to committees for further deliberation.
Kisiero said the Assembly managed to dispense at least 27 acts and 7 bills and passed three regulations.
Trans Nzoia County Assembly Speaker Joshua Werunga praised members for having approved a record of 9 urban development plans, including Kiminini, Surungai, Chepchoina, Kwanza, Nabiswa, and Sirende.
Werunga said these plans will propel the executive to achieve the planned Trans Nzoia County and expand their designated areas into towns, thus increasing revenue collection.
The Speaker recorded some dissatisfaction, including the snail flow of financial disbursement from the National Exchequer and mentioned 2019 as the year that was marred by a lot of challenges in the delay of the passage of bills.
The Assembly also welcomed the new Clerk, Mr. Moses Lupao, who is expected to usher in the new third Assembly after the August 9 general elections following the long-serving predecessor, Ainea Indakwa.
Out of the 39 outgoing MCAs, 3 will be vying for parliamentary seats. David Wangila Kisaka will be vying for Kiminini Constituency, Emmanuel Waswa Kwanza Constituency, and Jeremiah Wakhulia Endebes Constituency, while Speaker Joshua Werunga will be making an attempt at the Trans Nzoia Senate seat.
