Over 6,000 delegates to attend governors’ conference in Meru

Over 6,000 delegates are expected in Meru County next week for the third governors’ conference.

Addressing the media in his office on Wednesday, Devolution Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri said the conference would be critical in discussing and reviewing the successes and challenges of devolution in the past three years.

The conference, which will be held from the 19th – 21st of this month, will hold key discussions revolving around corruption, achievement of millennium development goals and the use of technology in running the counties, among other issues.

Kiunjuri further called on governors to play a more active role in the fight against corruption as well as work with relevant bodies tasked with fighting graft.

Kiunjuri said this harnessed effort would ensure the vice is eradicated.

This conference comes at a time when the Council of Governors has been complaining of frustration from the central government in the devolution agenda.

President Uhuru Kenyatta is expected to officially open the conference.
