Kidero confident the fruits of devolution will be reaped

20 January 2014, 18:08 Victor Tinto

Naivasha - Nairobi governor Evans Kidero is confident the fruits of devolution will eventually be reaped and has urged Kenyans to be patient as the country follows a new found path.

Kidero was speaking at the 2013 governors summit currently being held at the Great Rift Valley Lodge in Naivasha where he was keen to address the challenges of devolution.

Despite the overwhelming support and goodwill that Kenyans have given the process, there has often been more negative then positive news, with mismanagement, recklessness and in-fighting the major highlights, close to a year since the sweraing in of the Jubilee government.

And according to Kidero there have been problems though he wishes to look on the bright side.

" There have been problems as there are whenever there is a new system initiated everywhere in the world, he said while adressing governors and guests at the summit.

" We have to deal with them in the right way and try as much as possible to remember that we are here to serve Kenyans, he added.

He however agreed with most views at the summit that the process needs time and for Kenyans to be patient.

" It will take time to move in the right direction and Kenyans have to be patient. The fruits will eventually be reaped but time is important.

The summit seeks to look for ways of improving service delivery at county level, especially with the continued devolution of key services such as health and education from the national to county level.

Also attending the summit is Rwandese Prime Minister Paul Kagame, governors as well as may key speakers.
