Gachagua: I will mediate between warring MCAs and governors

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has said he will continue offering his mediation services to different counties to ensure devolution works.

He called on county governors to mend their relations with MCAs for the benefit of Kenyans.

“There is no way there will be progress in the midst of conflict,” said Gachagua.

He spoke on Thursday evening while he officially closed the 4-day Post-Election Seminar for Senators in Mombasa

The DP was forced to intervene when the Kericho county assembly members raised hell over their poor working relations with governor Eric Mutai.

On Monday, the DP will be meeting Meru MCAs who have had a difficult relationship with their governor Kawira Mwangaza, who was impeached but saved by the Senate.

He said Meru is a critical county to the Ruto administration both politically and economically and cannot afford to have them wrangling.

“I hope there will no problem because we must make devolution work,” said Gachagua.

Senate Speaker Amason Kingi said it is painful for the Senate to handle impeachment of Governors.

He said the Senate has empowered the Senate Devolution committee to go handle issues at the county level before they reach the Senate.

This way, he said, Kenyan taxpayers will be saved from incurring the costs of travel for attendance of Senate sessions for the impeached governors.

“That is why we have empowered the Devolution committee from the Senate and has been moving from county to county to handle issues at the county level before they reach the level of impeachment,” said Kingi.
