Gitura: No supremacy wars between governors, senators

04 March 2014, 10:22 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - The Senate deputy speaker, Kembi Gitura has said there are no supremacy wars between governors and senators.

Gitura stated that each arm of the government should take charge of its responsibilities as outlined in the constitution and other Acts of Parliament.

He added that Kenyans should give time to devolution to take shape stating that full effects of the new Constitution will be felt as time goes by.

“Devolution is not an event. It’s a process and you all know processes takes time,” Gitura told scores of golfers and businessmen from various parts of the country who had gathered at Nyeri Golf Club for a Golf Tournament over the weekend.

He said even in the most democratic countries like United States, conflicts were still being witnessed between various organs of the government nearly three centuries after they attained independence.

Nyeri Senator, Mutahi Kagwe echoed Gitura’s sentiments, adding that a little conflict between various leaders or groups should not be construed to mean that devolution was collapsing.

The two warned a section of Kenyan leaders who would like to see devolution done away with, saying that they stood to fail in their mission.

“Devolution is not reversible. With devolution, Kenyans are set to benefit more and thus it will be a recipe for chaos and unlawlesness if anyone ever dreamt of doing away with it,” Gitura said. These sentiments were seconded by Kagwe and Nyeri County Governor, Nderitu Gachagua who was also present at the event.

At the event, Kagwe, Gachagua and Kieni MP Kanini Kega pledged to work together for the benefit of the county.

Kega said he and governor Gachagua had resolved to work together for the benefit of the electorates.

Also present in the event was the club chairman who was recently appointed the chairman of Kenya Pipeline Company, Daniel Wamahiu and former cabinet minister, Samuel Phogisio who is the current chairman of Kenya Civil Aviation Authority.
