GOVERNORS have threatened to go to court should the Senate pass a bill to creat County Development Boards. Governors Summit chairman Isaac Rutto said they will seek legal redress with Court of appeal the bill be adopted.
"We will not hesitate to go to supreme court to challenge the bill as it violates the role of governors as spelt out in article 96," he said. Rutto said the Bill is unconstitutional because it will erode the powers of governors. "The role of senators and just like that of governors is clearly spelt out in the constitution but senators want to use the bill to allow them have a say on the devolved funds through the back door for their selfish gains," he said.
Rutto said the governors were elected to be the custodian of the devolved funds by the electorates. "They want to sneak in the bill to create room for them to share the same roles with us, we cvannot accept," he said.
