Governors elect new leader Thursday

20 May 2015, 16:54 William Korir

Nairobi - Governors meet Thursday in Nairobi to elect new leadership.

The Governors Council elects new leaders after current Chairman Isaac Ruto, the Bomet Governor leaves office after spending two year long terms at the helm of the Council.

The Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya and Meru's Peter Munya are the front runners for the seat and have been fronted by the other 45 Governors.

The current Council vice-chairman and Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya is an outside candidate.

Ruto states that he expects Thursday to be a celebration of democracy for the Council.

" We are looking forward to having new leaders and forwarding the devolution agenda," he told News24.

Ruto also believes that he has done his absolute best as chairman of the Council.

" I have enjoyed my stint and have been supported fully by Governors and I am delighted and happy that I leave having taken the council to a new level," he added.

Ruto also fought off suggestions that the Council elections will be a Political agenda, with the Jubilee versus CORD factor playing a part.

" There will be no such thing. Mine was not a political appointment and neither will this one. Things will be just fine and I am happy," he added.
