Devo­lu­tion be­ing de­railed, to save it then vote with care

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

The idea of devo­lu­tion was a re­sponse to Kenya’s chal­lenges such as prop­erty, marginal­i­sa­tion and poor gov­er­nance. It was en­vis­aged to en­sure qual­ity life, lib­erty, pros­per­ity and de­vel­op­ment at the grass­roots. How­ever, what we are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing is bla­tant mis­use of de­volved re­sources to de­feat what devo­lu­tion was in­tended to achieve. Those in­volved be­ing so pow­er­ful, the course of devo­lu­tion is de­railed. Even what is de­volved is not even reach­ing the coun­ties. In 2017, we should be cau­tious who we vote for avoid the blame game when devo­lu­tion fails.
