Council Of Governors state of devolution address by H.E. Hon. Martin Wambora, EGH Chairman CoG

8th July 2022

Excellency Governors,
Members of the Press,
Fellow Kenyans,

Chairman CoG2019On behalf of the Council of County Governors (CoG), it is my great pleasure to deliver the Ninth State of Devolution Address.  This is the last State of Devolution Address as we move closer to the exit of the second generation County Governments.  It is however a landmark address as we also move towards marking 10 years of devolution next year.
As you are all aware, over the last two (2) years, the pandemic hugely disrupted service delivery and affected various sectors of the economy. County Governments have taken significant strides to put in place measures to fast-track recovery from the shocks of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The County Governments will continue to implement the County Socio-Economic Recovery and Re-Engineering Strategy meant to spur the economic recovery and return to normalcy.

Fellow Kenyans,
On behalf of the forty-seven (47) County Governments, I truly feel honored and at the same time humbled to present to you a report of the gains, opportunities, and challenges encountered in the last one year.
