County Government of siaya.

From,Chief Whip

Bunge la wananchi,


Dear sir/ Madam

This is to inform your office to give fine details as to why siaya county Youths were not represented at the just concluded Africa Youth Summit at KICC, Nairobi since all the counties were represented except Siaya!

This letter is to demand that you give a clear explanation as to why this did not happen.

Failure to this after 21 working days, will lead to the application of article 1 of the constitution of Kenya,

“(1) All sovereign power belongs to the people of Kenya and shall be exercised only in accordance with this Constitution.

(2) The people may exercise their sovereign power either directly or through their democratically elected representatives.

(3) Sovereign power under this Constitution is delegated to the following State organs, which shall perform their functions in accordance with this Constitution —

(a) Parliament and the legislative assemblies in the county governments;

(b) the national executive and the executive structures in the county governments; and

(c) the Judiciary and independent tribunals.

(4) The sovereign power of the people is exercised at —

(a) the national level; and

(b) the county level.”

Therefore, I will instruct the county Assembly of siaya through the clerk to converne a special committee to look into the matter.

Steve Orindi,

Bunge Chief Whip, kenya
