Kenya: GOVERNORS induction in Naivasha faces challenges

Posted by African Press International on April 3, 2013


The induction workshop for governors and their deputies in Naivasha kicked off on the wrong footing with the elected leaders walking out on the Transitional Authority last evening.

Drama unfolded at the Great Rift Valley Lodge, Naivasha where the meeting was going on as the irate leaders staged a protest.

The incident occurred barely an hour after President Mwai Kibaki had left the hotel after opening the high level meeting.

Earlier, a group of governors tried to meet the Head of State to express their worries and their problems facing them.

Later they headed into a closed-door meeting with the Transitional authority chairman and his CIC colleague over the impasse.

One of the governors was overheard complaining over the manner in which the authority was treating them noting that they should be accorded the respect they deserve.

Confirming the impasse, Machakos County governor Alfred Mutua said that there was no way they could work without funds.

He said that majority of them had been forced to use their personal vehicles and pay their drivers and security officers as there were no funds.

The former government spokesman noted that despite getting assurance from treasury of getting funds, the promise was yet to be fulfilled.

On the issue of the National flag, the governors in unison said that they would ignore the directive from the AG and fly the flag on their vehicles.
