DP Ruto Turns Down Invitation From Governors, Days After They Snubbed His Meeting

The office of the Deputy President William Ruto has revealed that the DP will not be honouring an invitation from the Council of Governors. According to Citizen Digital, the DP's Communication Secretary David Mugonyi has stated that Ruto will instead send a representative to the 7th Devolution Conference happening in Makueni county.

Ruto was invited to be the keynote speaker at the event today, being the last day of the conference. He was also supposed to declare the conference concluded. It is however expected that he will be touring Nyandarua county.

This decision by the DP comes days after he chaired the Intergovernmental Budget and Economic Council (IBEC) meeting at his Karen residence, where only 9 governors and 1 Cabinet Secretary attended.

Those who attended included; Governor Anyang Nyong'o, Governor Ndiritu Meureithi, Governor Stanley Kiptis, Governorn Anne Waiguru, Governor Paul Chepkwony, Governor Jackson Mandago, Governor Sospeter Ojamoong, Governor Josphat Nanok and Governor Martin Wambora.

It therefore may be understandable that the DP can forego the devolution conference given as a section of governors have made it obvious that they don't recognise his authority as the second in command. Others will argue that the UDA leader could have braved the disaffection and issued his speech regardless.
