PRESS STATEMENT FOLLOWING A FULL COUNCIL MEETING

 

Chairman CoG2019Fellow Kenyans,
Members of the Press,

Introduction
In accordance with the Intergovernmental Relations Act 2021, we have just concluded our Council meeting to discuss pertinent issues affecting County Governments. We hereby address you on some of the critical deliberations from our meeting.
In Health;
1. Establishment of Authorities without consultations with the Counties
We note with utmost concern that the following Authorities were established by the Ministry of Health through executive orders issued by the Former President a few months preceding the August 9th General Elections.
• The Kenya National Public Health Institute Order of 2022
• National Syndemic Diseases Control Authority and;
• Kenya Tissue and Transplant Authority
Further, this continues to be a trend whereby the National Government creates institutions to undertake devolved functions. The Council calls for the audit of all laws that had been passed before the inception of devolution in 2013 and also post-2013- with a bid to align those to the devolved system of governance.
2. Management and transition of Universal Health Coverage (UHC) staff
