President Ruto’s government is committed to strengthening devolution to enhance service delivery to the people.

The President said that the Kenya Kwanza administration is working with all governors, irrespective of their political affiliation, to spur inclusive growth and development.

The Head of State acknowledged devolved units as invaluable assets in the implementation of the Bottom-Up Economic Transformation Agenda.

He cited the Affordable Housing Program as one of the program that the two levels of government are working together to deliver.

“We view county governments as assets and partners in the delivery of The Plan and the transformation of our country,” he said.

He made the remarks today during the Second National Executive Retreat attended by the leadership of the Council of Governors, led by Chairperson Ann Waiguru in Naivasha, Nakuru County.

The President said he had invited the leadership of the Council of Governors to the National Executive Retreat to strengthen the partnership between the two levels of government.

He asked members of the Executive to work closely with county governments in the execution of their mandate, saying it would be counterproductive to sideline them.

“We must converge our thoughts and plans so that together we can change our country,” he added.

He commended Governors as team players.
