Nyanza church leaders are urging President Kenyatta and his Deputy Ruto to implement devolution

Posted by African Press International on April 14, 2013

Nyanza Council of Church Leaders say that the New Government under President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto should fully support the devolved system of Governance.
They are also saying the new Administration should enable the County Leaders in the 47 Counties across the Country to carry their Constitutional mandate without interferences from any external forces as was pledged during the swearing-in on Tuesday of the new leaders in the Presidency.
They further appeal to the new Administration to embrace Nyanza Region in his Development plan despite its political affiliation because it is also part and parcel of this country.
They pledge that they will support and work with the new Administration since it is the Government of the day.
What is now important in the Country is for the new President and his team to fully help in uniting the Country so that it to be one Nation especially after the just concluded intense political campaigns witnessed in the recent past in various parts of the Country.
They urge the new Government to strive to deliver and fulfill its various pledges to Kenyans which they made when they were campaigning as contained in the Jubilee Coalition manifesto.
The Country now needs the element of Peace and tranquility so as to help it prosper under the new system of Government, hence the need to promote peace in various parts of the country
There is also need to heal and reconcile various communities after those vigorous political campaigns prior to the just concluded General Elections and this therefore calls on the New Government to ensure the Country is united while it takes shape.
The group fear that the new government may ignore Nyanza region because the voters there did not show support for President Uhuru and Deputy President Ruto during their campaigns and the voting. The people of Nyanza voted overwhelmingly for their own “crown prince Raila Odinga“, as believed by them,  a man who failed to win the presidency after so much thirst to take over the Presidency, – and now failing in his third attempt.. All his critics believe that he will never be president because the next presidential elections will be in August 2017, and that time will find him clocking 73 years old. This was his last chance. He is was prime minister during the Kibaki’s last term in office. He got the job due to pressure on Kibaki by the International community after the 2007/2008 post-election violence.
