Uhuru addresses Devolution Conference via video link from South Africa
President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday addressed the seventh and final Devolution Conference that is currently ongoing in Makueni.
Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga addressed the conference before Uhuru's remarks.
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.
