, NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 14 – President Uhuru Kenyatta took his second Madaraka Express train ride to the coast ahead of the Governors induction seminar set to kick off on Thursday.
This is the second time the President is using the train after the inaugural ride on May 31.
President Kenyatta is set to open the first retreat for governors and their deputies at Diani Reef Hotel in Kwale County.
All was set Wednesday for the first governors’ meeting after the August election with Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya exuding confidence of becoming the council’s boss.
Jubilee has endorsed Mvurya for the seat to dethrone Turkana Governor Josephat Nanok with Kirinyaga’s Anne Waiguru as his deputy.
Former chairpersons of the council Isaac Ruto and Peter Munya had been at odds with the Jubilee regime which they accused of stifling devolution.
