Residents will also be allowed to ask questions.
Some residents have however questioned why the government hired proboxes yet it has many vehicles which are currently not being used.
“Several vehicles were purchased in Kilifi County and so far most staff are working from home. Can the county government use those vehicles in facilitating Civic education instead of hiring probox cars at exhobitant prices? Looting on the set go,” wrote Emmanuel Kadenge Ndurya of facebook.
