EX Mwatate Board Chair Concedes

Former chairman of Mwatate Municipality Board Martin Tairo has conceded to changes in the Board’s composition that saw a new chairperson appointed in his place.


In a social media post today, Tairo said that the changes took place during a meeting chaired by Governor Granton Samboja on 6th May. Tairo, who is based in Nairobi, says that he was unable to attend to the meeting due to the current cessation of movement preventing Nairobi residents from leaving.


“My name and that of another board member were dropped from the board. Another board chairman was picked together with chairpersons of committees,” wrote Tairo in his social media post. “As it stands, I believe I have been relieved of my duties as chairman and board member of the Mwatate Municipal Board.”


Tairo however says he will not pursue legal action over his apparent dismissal. Instead, he pointed out several areas of concern that he feels puts legal question marks on the new board’s composition. The issues include the academic qualifications of some board members and the lack of representatives from professional associations.


The Mwatate Municipal Board was first formed in 2018 when Mwatate was elevated into a municipality to qualify for a World Bank funded infrastructure and modernization project. Voi town is also set to benefit from the project alongside several other towns in Kenya.
