Mombasa county chief whip Mohamed Ndanda has criticised Transport executive secretary Mohamed Abbas of disrespecting the county assembly.
Speaking to the Star on the phone, Ndanda accused Abbas of introducing 'new laws' that are not formulated by the county legislators.
"Laws are usually made by Parliament in any country. They must be approved by the parliament after they pass through several stages including input from the public.
"The new Tuk-tuk rules were shoved to county residents. I don't know who passed them," said Ndanda, who is also a member of the County Assembly Committee on Transport.
However, in a quick rejoinder, Abbas accused Ndanda of ignorance saying he should first get his facts right before commenting on issues.
"The new rules were an executive order from the governor and not law. Nobody has come up with any laws," said Abbas.
He said the new rules only re-routed the Tuk-tuks from the CBD to ease congestion. He said if there was any change of law, the County Assembly would have been involved.
