Ruto complains as 16 Governors miss Uhuru meeting

12 February 2016, 14:23 William Korir

Nairobi - 16 Governors missed the just ended summit on devolution and government, prompting DP William Ruto to complain about their absence.

Only 31 of 47 Governors missed the summit which was held Wednesday and Thursday at the State House lodge in Sagana, close to half of the County heads.

According to Council of Governors Chairman Peter Munya, all the missing Governors had placed in apologies for missing the event but that did not stop Ruto from complaining.

" This is a serious number missing. I can understand four or five missing but 16 is a large number," he said during the closing ceremony of the event.

Munya stated that most of the Governors had handed in prior apologies and that they were busy elsewhere but that did not cut it with the DP.

" We are here to assess the gains made by Devolution and to seek ways of improving. That there are many missing is not good," he added.

Among the missing was Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto who openly stated that he was doing other business and did not have time for the conference.

" I am here in Bomet doing business that will benefit the people and not wasting time and money," he told News24.

Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho was with CORD leader Raila Odinga speaking about Eurobond matters.

Nyeri boss Nderitu Gachagua on his part was outside the country seeking treatment as acknowledged by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

" I have received the apologies of the Governor who is seeking treatment.
