Kajiado County Government today marked four years of devolution in a function in Loitokitok that was shunned by elected MCAs and host Kajiado MP, Katoo ole Metito.
Governor David Nkedianye delivered his state of the county address in the absence of elected leaders except Magadi ODM MCA, Peter Pariken and a host of cabinet members.
The function held at Loitokitok St. Lukes Catholic Church was preceded by one held last year at Nakeel Grounds in Ongata Rongai that was attended by thousands of residents and a section of elected MCAs including Kajiado Senator, Peter Mositet.
The absence of elected leaders on the podium where the governor sat along with his cabinet members provided space for the elderly, who were passing by, to sit.
All the empty seats meant for the local MCAs, MP, Women representative MP and Senator were later occupied low rank officials from the county government.
The seat that was also reserved for the County Commissioner, Harsama Kello, was occupied later.
As we filed this report, choir groups and local singers were entertaining the governor and his cabinet.
Such celebrations have been marked with pomp in the past three years where leaders are given a chance to poke holes into governor Nkedianye’s leadership.
Nkedianye was expected to unveil some of the major projects that his government had undertaken in the last four years while his government was elected to the office after the 2013 general elections.
