• Mnyazi handed 21 motorcycles to the Malindi chiefs to assist them in mobility.
• The MP said the CDF officers should go to all the offices and see the state of the chiefs' offices and compile a report for action to be taken.
Most chiefs in the Malindi constituency do not have physical offices, Malindi MP Amina Mnyazi has said.
She directed that NG-CDF officials in her office conduct visits to establish the number of chiefs who do not have physical addresses.
Mnyazi handed 21 motorcycles to the Malindi chiefs to assist them in mobility.
During the handover of the motorcycles, Malindi division assistant county commissioner Geoffrey Waini said the area is vast but they have only one vehicle for operations by the administrators.
“Most of our chiefs have no offices. If I tell those who have offices to raise their hands, you will see more than a half of them do not have offices,” he said.
Waini said the motorcycles will help administrators to deliver their mandate effectively.
MP Mnyazi said the 21 motorcycles were acquired by the previous regime of current Public Service CS Aisha Jumwa but did not hand them over as the political season had started and that’s why she is the one handing them over to the chiefs.
She said her office is committed to working closely with the administrators to deal with issues of insecurity and administration matters.
Mnyazi said chiefs and their assistants play a major role in the provision of security and deserve a proper working environment.
“There have been many requests through our NG-CDF offices they want office buildings, that’s why I have directed the CDF officials to move out of their offices and go to the grassroots on a fact-finding mission to know the needs of the administrators,” she said.
The MP said the CDF officers should go to all the offices and see the state of the chiefs' offices and compile a report for action to be taken.
Mnyazi said, if possible, she will build three offices each financial year so that at the end of the term, she will have covered a majority of them.
She said Malindi has recorded an increase in cases of insecurity.
“We thought by giving the chiefs motorcycles it will make their work easier in their day-to-day operations,” she said.
