President Uhuru to Address Devolution Conference via Video Link from South Africa
The Head of State Uhuru Kenyatta is set to address the seventh and final Devolution Conference that is currently ongoing in Makueni County via a video link from South Africa.
Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i, who is in Makueni, confirmed the President's address before inviting the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga to speak.
This year's theme is ‘Multi-level Governance for Climate Action: Sub National Mobilisation in Unlocking the Full Potential of Climate Action during after pandemics.’
The conference will have five sessions in the main plenum and 14 sector breakaway sessions.
Going forward, the conference will be scheduled once every two years starting 2022. Initially, the conference had been scheduled for May 3 to May 7, 2021.
Then it was pushed to August 2021 but was postponed due to Covid-19 directives in the country.
More than 3,000 fully vaccinated delegates are attending the conference at Makueni Boys High School.
