Wahome Thuku: A Governor is a President of a county as a constitutional mandate. He presides the county. You cant treat him like your gardener whether you like him or not. And that is the position for Governor of Meru, Nyeri Kisumu, Murang’a, Mombasa, Kiambu, Lamu…all 47.
They are elected and have no obligation to toe the lines of the National Government. Even the budgetary allocations to the county govts is constitutionally provided, you cant slash it like you do with the judiciary at will. They run governments and that is something we have to get into our Heads and get it very fast. So you have to ask yourself, if you try to intimidate a governor and he still doesn’t toe the line what will you do, shoot him dead or what?
Mutembei Mwobobia: Governor is the chief executive of a county and the presidency to a governor is just like Queen Elizabeth in British pretence of monarchy.Like it or not the baba wa taifa presidency dessipated with 2010 constitution.
Hillary Nyanga : Uhuru kenyatta current president of kenya always moves with emotions.if someone doesn’t accept his ideologies he tends to turn to intimidating his opponents…Doesn’t sound like a real leader to me. he has made so many foolish moves because someone somewhere doesn’t politically agree with him. so much for growing up in the house up the hill , he tends to forget others are free to believe what they feel is right.
