Report: 90% of governors will not be re-elected

02 September 2015, 15:40 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - 90 percent of governors will not be re-elected in 2017 due to underperformance, a new report has shown.

The county government governance report launched Wednesday morning at a Nakuru hotel established that only a paltry 10% of the governors stand a chance of being re-elected for a second term.

The report encompasses a research conducted between March 2015 and August 2015 in all the 47 county governments, involving members of County assemblies, policy makers, politicians, the electorate and county government officials.

The research was carried out by the a non-governmental organization dubbed 'The County Governments Performance Monitoring Unit (CGPMU).

Speaking during the launch of the report, CGPMU chairman Mureithi Mugo said that a big percentage of Kenyans were dissatisfied with the performances of their governors and vowed not to re-elect them.

“In most counties, the people we interviewed expressed disappointment with their County bosses due to the poor services being offered. Most governors are likely to face the wrath of their constituents in 2017 and only a few of them will be back in 2017,” said Mugo.

Mugo added that there are some governors who already know that they will not be re-elected in 2017, and some are using the opportunity they have to steal form County coffers.

“In the research, we interviewed governors and some of them can boldly tell you that they know they will not be re-elected in 2017,” he said.

The counties that expressed confidence in their governors include Machakos, Mombasa, Vihiga, Nyeri, Kilifi, lamu and Kwale.
