Welcome to the County Assembly of Embu’s official website and thank you for the support you have continually shown to your democratically elected leaders, through whom you exercise your sovereign power.
It is a delight to open our doors to our operations through this interactive forum. We wish to pledge to uphold the open-door policy in the quest to inform Embu residents on our role in representation, law making, oversight and policy approvals in the county.

The Assembly is the legislative Arm of the Embu County Government and draws its mandate from the provisions of Article 185 of the Constitution of Kenya.
The County Assembly of Embu consists of 34 Members; 20 elected Ward Representatives, 13 nominated MCAs and the Speaker as an ex-officio member.
The three key roles of the legislature are representation, oversight and legislation, while the executive arm of the County Government implements the laws passed by the Assembly; including projects outlined in the county budget.
According to article 196 of the Constitution of Kenya, the County Assembly must conduct its business in an open manner, and hold its sittings and those of its committees, in public; and facilitate public participation and involvement in the legislative and other business of the assembly and its committees.
The same article dictates that the County Assembly may not exclude the public, or any media, from any sitting unless in exceptional circumstances the speaker has determined that there are justifiable reasons for doing so. Read more
