Governor harassed by police for attending the President's event in a Probox

11 February 2016, 08:16 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Busia Governor, Sospeter Ojaamong was Wednesday harassed by security officers at Sagana State Lodge in Nyeri County.

The officers denied Ojaamong entry into the 5th Governors’ Summit which was presided over by President Uhuru Kenyatta, his Deputy William Ruto and Council of Governors' Chairman Peter Munya.

Ojaamong was barred from entering the Summit as he arrived in a Probox car unlike his colleagues who drove in posh cars with official customized registration numbers.

He was saved by one of the General Service Unit (GSU) police officers manning the facility who identified him.

Other senior officers demanded to have his identification documents vetted before allowing him in.

It was not clear why the former Amagoro constituency MP arrived alone in a simple grey car which dropped him and left while he has official vehicles and security details attached to his office.

The two-day meeting is aimed at reviewing achievements and challenges of the devolved system of government which became operational after the 2013 general elections.

Some 16 governors, however, did not attend the special conference, but sent their apologies.

The Summit was also scheduled to deliberate on various reports by the Intergovernmental Budget and Economic Council, the Intergovernmental Relations Technical Committee and reports on Public Finance Management.

Several Cabinet secretaries led by Mwangi Kinunjuri (Devolution), Eugene Wamalwa (Water and Irrigation) and several Principal Secretaries also attended.
