Governor Waititu said staff will be required to follow the new directive.

"Under devolution we are required to give the 70 per cent of every opportunity to the majority and 30 per cent to the minority so there nothing to make the move by the MCAs a debate. We spend funds to develop this county and we want the locals to be the among the top beneficiaries,” said Mr Waititu told the Nation.

He added: “As we help investors to establish businesses in our county we need them to give priority to our residents. We cannot be fighting for job opportunities for our youth then they be left out.”

He added that the county officials at in the government institutions and business institutions would be scrutinized in the near future as a measure to implement the 70 per cent staff requirements.

“Devolution was initiated so that people can enjoy development at their door steps and that is what we are advocating for,” he said.

Mr Waititu’s remarks comes a day after the Kiambu County Assembly passed a motion that will compel public and private institutions and businesses operating in the region to get 70 per cent of its workforce from the dominant community.
