The Kitui County Assembly is one of the county assemblies established by the new Kenyan constitution.
The County Assembly has several functions. First, the assembly provides accountability and oversight to the functions of the county executive and the Kitui Governor’s office. The Assembly ensures that all the resources allocated to the county are used for the benefit of the people of Kitui.
The assembly also makes laws that govern the county of Kitui. The new constitution gave all counties the freedom to decide on their priorities in order to ensure that all development programs answer the needs of the locals.
