Nominated Senator Beatrice Akinyi has sought a statement from the Senate Standing Committee on Land, Environment and Natural Resources on the proposed relocation of Homabay GOK Prisons to Ndhiwa Sub County instead of a proposed University on the same parcel.
In her request, Sen. Akinyi wants the committee to state when the decision to relocate the Homabay GOK Prisons to Ndhiwa Sub County was arrived at, disclosing the parties involved in the decision and when the public participation with the residents of Ndhiwa community was conducted.
The lawmaker requires the committee to state considerations made in selection of Ndhiwa as the area where Homabay GOK Prison would be relocated to stating the exact location of the land where the Prison is to be relocated to.
The legislator further wants the committee to undertake a visit to Ndhiwa Sub County to ascertain the accuracy of the reports of consultations to prevent potential conflict with the community.
