Rutto promises accountability from Governors

22 January 2014, 17:40 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Chairman of the Governors Council Isaac Rutto has promised Kenyans improved accountability from County governments.

Rutto was speaking at the closing of the Governors Summit in Naivasha, where he stressed the importance of openness and accountability of county governments to Kenyans.

He further urged governors to enhance communication between their offices and the public to give a chance to Kenyans to contribute to development.

" We have learnt lessons at the smmit with the experiences of other leaders and how they manage and micro-manage their regions, he said.

" I think we all agree that there can be improvements made in the way we run our regions and all of us will leave Naivasha keen to improve.

The key note speech by Rwandese President Paul Kagame drew praise from Rutto who called it eye-opening and encouraging to the leaders.

" He gave a good speech and we thank him for taking his time to come out here and address us. He showed us that there can be lots done in a small space and in a short time.

County governments have come under fire in the last one year over their spending patterns and lack of accountability to the public.

The national government has also pledged to keep the 47 counties on toes over their budgetary allocations to improve on service delivery.
