Governors debate Referendum in retreat

05 June 2015, 13:59 William Korir

Nairobi - Governors will debate the merits and demerits of the Pesa Mashinani referendum as they meet in their retreat in Naivasha.

The Governors are meeting under new leadership, with Meru's Peter Munya the new chairman of the Council, having replaced former chair Isaac Ruto last month.

The agenda of the meeting will mainly be on how to increase allocations to counties, therefore the talk of the Pesa Mashinani referendum.

Talk will also center on whether the referendum can be merged with the Okoa Kenya referendum of the CORD coalition.

" We will talk about the referendum in detail," Munya said on the eve of the retreat.

" The agreement is that we want to have more funds for the Counties. We will debate ways of ensuring we get more funds," he added.

Whether the two referendums will be merged is up for debate, with former chairman Ruto having already started talks with CORD leader Raila Odinga over the merger.

There is likely to be lobbying for it not to happen, as many of the Governors are under the banner of the Jubilee coalition which will not take any alliance with Raila lightly.

Also on the agenda will be the issues facing Governors such as corruption, integrity and ongoing projects.
