Kindiki: Devolution is under threat

27 January 2015, 12:14 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - Senate’s Majority Leader Kithure Kindiki Monday said devolution in Kenya is under threat.

According to Kindiki, the devolved system of government which was brought up following the promulgation of the new constitution in 2010 has faced a lot of challenges since its implementation.

“Devolution under threat many counties facing risk of total breakdown. Narok, Isiolo, Embu, Marsabit, Mandera, Makueni, and Machakos are on fire.

Devolution has brought a regrettable rise in violence. Those responsible for the death in the Narok protests today must be punished,” he said in reference to Monday’s protest that led to killing of two people in Narok County.

Police clashed with protesters who accused Governor Samuel Tunai of corrupt handling of tourism funds from the Maasai Mara game reserve.

The protesters were led by a section of leaders from the county.

Several counties have also witnessed chaos following leadership, political and personal disputes among leaders.

Such counties include Embu, where the governor was impeached several times but was later reinstated by the court.

Kericho Governor Paul Chepkwony was also impeached over corruption allegations but was later reinstated by the Senate.

In Kiambu, a section of leaders have vowed to impeach Governor William Kabogo following leadership wrangles in the county. Same is the case in Machakos County where Governor Alfred Mutua and his deputy are always engaged in leadership wrangles.

Makueni County residents were forced to call for the dissolution of the county government following recurrent leadership wrangles.
