Put your egos aside and work with na­tional govern­ment, gov­er­nors urged

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

Gov­er­nors have been urged to put aside their egos and work with the na­tional govern­ment to im­ple­ment key projects.

Bomet Cen­tral MP Ron­ald Tonui urged county chiefs to re­solve their dif­fer­ences am­i­ca­bly.

“The coun­ties should not be seen to be com­pet­ing with the na­tional govern­ment for projects be­cause their func­tions are clearly spelt out in the con­sti­tu­tion,” he said in Bomet town on Satur­day. Tonui said “un­nec­es­sary tug of war” be­tween the govern­ments have made projects stall.

He said lead­ers should avoid di­vi­sive talk. Tonui faulted Meru Gover­nor Peter Munya for trav­el­ling to So­ma­liland to dis­cuss the tem­po­rary ban on mi­raa ex­ports.

He urged Bomet lead­ers to stop fight­ing. Tonui said the fights have de­layed the con­struc­tion of a univer­sity.
