Council of Governors outgoing chairman Isaac Ruto is headed to a global body on devolved governments after leading governors for two non-renewable terms.
Mr Ruto will be the focal person for Africa in the United Nations for sub-regional governments, a body based in Colombia, Latin America, that enhances sharing experiences on running of counties.
The body had representatives in the just-concluded second devolution conference in Kisumu.
From Africa, Nigeria and Ghana are some of the members of the organisation
The chairman was, however, not willing to give details of the appointment.
â€œIâ€™m sure an announcement will be made at an appropriate time if that happens,â€ he said.
The association brings together all countries with one form of decentralised government or other.
The position will hand the governor another lifeline. As Council of Governors chair, Mr Ruto robustly took on the national government and particularly Deputy President William Ruto as a champion for devolution.
The position will also help him keep the kind of public presence he needs ahead of the 2017 elections.
At the same time, intense lobbying is going on among governors on who to succeed Mr Ruto.
