Mombasa's induction retreat for newly elected governors postponed - Council of Governors

The Council of Governors has said that there are still consulting.

The Council of Governors Director of Communications Mr Andrew Teyie on Monday said that “consultations between the partners are still ongoing before new dates and agenda are set.”

The 25 Governors and their deputies were expected to retreat to Mombasa for induction at a conference aimed at strengthening devolution. All the 25 are newly elected.

The four-day-long conference was meant to orient the 25 newly elected governors and their deputies on how to run the devolved system.

They were also earmarked for orientation on how well to assess the successes and failures of the pioneer regional governments.

Under the theme “Better Governance and Accountability for ultimate devolution dividends to all Kenyans”, the induction was to explore key areas that will aid in the smooth management of county operations.

These included public service delivery, intergovernmental relations structures and practices, public finance management and leadership and integrity among others.

Thereafter, the Council of Governors was to hold a council meeting to resolve pending issues key among them elections and representation in the technical committees.

In the August 8 polls, nearly half of the governors who served in the first time in the previous devolved government, were axed by the elctorates.
