The Nairobi County Government officialdom boycotted the â€ª#â€ŽOkoaKenyaâ€¬ launch. It was awkward moment when the MC called the Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero to make welcoming remarks but the governor nor his deputy were nowhere to be seen.
Wiper’s Johnstone Muthama conveyed Deputy Governor Mueke’s apologies but there was none from Governor Kidero, who in my view, not only embarrassed Party Leader Raila Odinga by this snub, but also behaves as if the devolution that is the theme of this referendum agitation will be of no benefit to the urban poor of Nairobi County. (His aides says he has travelled overseas, how convenient!)
Needless to say three Governor’s travelled from Siaya, Kisumu and Taveta to demonstrate solidarity with the #OkoaKenya movement. We laud them
