Redson Onyango Elected to Chair Water and Sanitation Committee


Nairobi County Assembly has today proceeded with the election of various chairs and Vice Chairs of various select and sectorial committees.

Among those elected to the various committees today are Ngei Members of the County Assembly Redson Otieno Onyango who has been elected chair of the Water and Sanitation.

In his acceptance speech, Redson who was elected for the second term promised to ensure the issue of water shortage and rationing is solved once and all during his period of serving.

“We have been seeing cartels closing the water taps and selling it to Nairobians when it is supposed to be free. We are going to ensure that all the estates are having water,” Redson stated.

Redson who was elected unopposed has also promised to ensure the people who use the water without meters are dealt with and pay the dues that are required.

“I know there are also people using water without meter reading which is not good. As a chair of the committee am going to ensure all pay the water bills and get it well without any obstacles,” he added.

Nominated MCA (Jubilee) Asley Mohammed will deputise him making her the first MCA of Somali origin to occupy such a position.

Last week the House approved Members designated to various Committees following a Motion moved by the Leader of Majority, Peter Imwatok on Thursday October 27, 2022.

The assembly Speaker Ken Ng’ondi will chair the Powers and Privileges Committee.

Kenya Kwanza Alliance which is the Minority will chair the powerful watchdog Public Accounts Committee (PAC) and the Public Investments Committee (PIC).
