Nairobi - Governors are adamant that nothing will derail devolution despite increasing challenges to its course.
Devolution has been the center of attention in the last year, with the system taking root with the arrival of the new government system in March 2013.
There have been various roadblocks to the new system, especially the battle of supremacy being witnessed between members of parliament , the senate and governors.
Added to that, there has been the debate over bad spending of money by county governments which has led to the impeachment of some governors and the summon of others over the incidences.
But according to governors council chairman Isaac Ruto, nothing will stop devolution and that the current problems being witnessed are just part of the course.
" Nothing will derail devolution because it is unstoppable, he said during a ceremony to mark one year since the system kicked off in the country, Thursday.
He alluded to challenges being met along the way but argued that things will get better with time.
" Things will improve with time. We know that what we are doing is important for the nation and that is is just a matter of time before we embrace it, he said.
Ruto added that governors are in no mood to take on MPs and Senators in a supremacy war, stating that it was important that nation building takes the lead in the country.
