'CORD is politicising devolution'

01 August 2013, 11:26 Wangui Joseph

Nairobi - The devolution and transition process was scheduled to take three years to form an established and functional system of governance, Nyeri county member of the national assembly, Priscilla Nyokabi, said on Tuesday.

Nyokabi said the opposition members (CORD) are politicising and criticising the devolution path followed by the Jubilee government.

She made the remarks while addressing a media workshop organised by the International Commission of Jurists Kenya section.

In regard to the recent row between the national assembly and the senate, the MP said the latter is there to facilitate devolution.

Nyokabi also urged youth and women to form groups that can benefit from the KES 6 billion promised by President Kenyatta and his deputy during their election campaign.

She disclosed that the kitty has been redesigned as Uwezo funds and will soon be disbursed, adding that the funds will be supervised by constituency and County MPs.

“Women Representatives and constituency MPs will be the managers of the funds and will form the Uwezo Management Committee” said Nyokabi.

She added that the government is committed to fulfill its promises and assured the youth that the 30% procurement rule will be observed in government’s tenders.

Nyokabi however urged the county assemblies to pass and enact laws providing access to information by members of the public.

“If there is secrecy corruption persists and if there is transparency corruption lacks space,” she asserted.
