Uhuru clueless about Devolution, Munya says

08 April 2016, 19:32 William Korir

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta is clueless about devolution, Meru Governor Peter Munya says.

The Council of Governors Chairman says that the President was mislead by his advisers over the state of the devolved units.

The President had tough words for the devolved governments and governors who he said needed to be more accountable about the manner in which they run the units.

He described them as left behind by time.

Munya though says that the President got it all wrong in his assessment.

"Recently, we have had politicians at very high level giving their opinion on devolution. But it is only us who have the real picture of the social economic transformation that county governments have brought into this country," he told News24 on phone from Naivasha.

Munya added that the devolution conference set for Meru town from April 19-22 will present another opportunity to highlight the achievements and challenges county governments were facing.

" Devolution is ongoing and doing well. There are issues but it has not been a failure. Far from," he added.

The President stated that he felt that Devolution could do better but also accused the leadership of corruption and wastage.

" It always beats me why even the national government would choose to whine about corruption in the counties while it is in full control of all accountability agencies," Munya added.

Devolution is completing its first cycle having come to the fore with the arrival of the Jubilee Coalition in 2013.
