 Did These MPs create wards for themselves? By ALPHONCE SHIUNDU
Posted  Saturday, February 25, 2012

MPs in the Justice and Legal Affairs Committee will on Tuesday face questions in Parliament over their apparent push to skew the review of electoral boundaries in their favour.

Mr Abdikadir Mohammed (Mandera Central), Isaac Ruto (Chepalungu), Sofia Abdi Noor (nominated), Millie Odhiambo (nominated), Ababu Namwamba (Budalang’i) and Olago Aluoch (Kisumu Town West) will have to respond to accusations of “manipulating the work of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission” to serve their interests.Description: Photos/FILE  From Left: Mr Abdikadir Mohammed (Mandera Central), Olago Aluoch (Kisumu Town West), Sofia Abdi Noor (nominated), Ababu Namwamba (Budalang’i), Millie Odhiambo (nominated) and Isaac Ruto (Chepalungu).

These six MPs have made their colleagues uneasy about the delimitation exercise.

“Members are at war that the committee, whose role should just be to look and table “yes” or “no” to the report from the IEBC, are already changing the boundaries,” Mr Jakoyo Midiwo (Gem) told his colleagues on Wednesday as he blew the lid off in the work of the committee.

A look at the complaints that the MPs raised informally with the committee members, to which the Sunday Nation is privy, shows that the disgruntled MPs have a case.

Ms Noor, a nominated MP, comes from Ijara Constituency in Garissa County. She wields clout in the area as the executive chairperson of ODM.

So, the fact that the committee has proposed four new wards for Ijara – a constituency with just 92,663 people and an area of 9,521 square kilometres – is an obvious pointer.

The House team got seven petitions from Ijara. All the seven wanted extra wards, an extra constituency, and they wanted the border between Garissa and Tana River counties to be the Tana River.
