The Kenya-Sweden urban planning benchmarking experience

Press Statement by Council of Governors, Chairman H.E Josphat Nanok on attempted assassination of Mandera Governor, H.E Captain Ali Roba on 24th May 2017

The Council of Governors is concerned by attempted assassination of Mandera Governor, H.E Ali Roba, resulting in the murder of his five bodyguards today. This is the seventh attempt on H.E Roba’s life in a span of three years.

The Council calls on the Department of Interior and National Coordination to take the attempted assassination of H.E Captain Ali Roba and the ceaseless murders of residents of Mandera seriously and stop offering lame justifications for insecurity of in the County.

Remarks by H.E Josphat Nanok, the new Chairman of the Council of Governors 22nd May 2017

The Honourable Chief Justice,
The Speaker of the Senate,
Cabinet Secretaries,
Excellency Governors,
Heads of Missions,
Chairpersons of Constitutional Commissions,
Development Partners,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Allow me, first of all, to express my sincere, heartfelt gratitude to the members of the Council for putting their trust in me by electing me as Chairman of the Council of Governors. I am truly honoured by this appointment.
CoG began its work in 2013 with a note of uncertainty. Devolution was an entirely new concept in Kenya. Our new Constitution was highly ambitious because it introduced a drastic departure from the previous norm. So beginning the process of putting in place a new governance structure and setting up hundreds of institutions was a scary prospect.

But CoG also began its work with a spirit...
