Fumigation process is almost complete at the Bungoma County Assembly prencits ahead of its reopening on Tuesday June 9.

The Assembly has been in recess for almost three months as a means of fighting global pandemic COVID-19.

Assembly Clerk John Mosongo stated that they have followed all the government guidelines to help in combating Coronavirus.

He said that the fumigation exercise of the assembly chambers, public gallery, offices, car parking areas and the environment has been ongoing in preparation of its reopening.

“We are not leaving anything to chance, we have to ensure that honorable members do not contract the disease as they resume sittings on Tuesday at 2:30 pm, we have put in place all safety measures that will help fight the pandemic,” he said.

Top on the tray for MCAs is the passage of the 2020/2021 budget which will see development projects being initiated by the executive.

The County has 63 members both elected and nominated.

Mosongo stated that the fumigation process has been successful through the assistance of public health officers who have done an excellent job in preventing the assembly from Coronavirus.

“They have played an important role in the fumigation process, they have sprayed every corner of the assembly to get rid of the disease that has caused panic all over the world,” he said.

He added, “All MCAs and our officers will also undergo mandatory screening through the use of the thermometer and will follow all government directives like observing social distance, stopping handshakes and putting on face masks while on duty,”.

He observed that they have already allocated seats to MCAs while observing one meter rule and this will force other members to use the public gallery.
