Devolution on course: Ruto
17 March 2014, 21:24
Nairobi - Deputy president William Ruto says there is no need for changes to the constitution to ensure devolution works.
Ruto was addressing a group of deputy governors Monday in a forum to address the problems that devolution has caused and the troubles of implementing it.
He added that the government was doing all that is in its power to ensure the ends are met in dealing with devolution.
" The government will deliver on devolution and to the letter, he said.
He added that the government had so far shown its ability to promote devolution by providing the necessary framework to ensure it thrives.
" The government has so far given every indicator that it is up to devolution and that it is interested in nothing but its success.
There has been lots of devolution talk in recent months with focus being primarily on how much should be allocated to the devolved governments and Ruto was equivocal that the government was playing its part.
" So far the government had provided up to 32% of its funds to ensure that there is development at county level and that will continue, he added.
