Raila takes on Kibaki over Devolution
Published 3.April 2013
Minister Raila Odinga has warned of a scheme to derail devolution of
power to the grassroots. Odinga says undermining the authority of
governors was part of the plot and urged the officials to unite in
defense of devolution. Raila's remarks come a day after President Mwai
Kibaki told elected governors that the country remains a unitary state, a
statement that was immediately dismissed as misleading by the
Constitution Implementation Commission chairman Charles Nyachae. And as
NTV's Brenda Wanga reports, the devolution tussle is seemingly proving
to be the first post election challenge.
