Kenyans on Twitter an angry lot following the governors decision to attend the Kenya diaspora unity conference in Texas, USA.
They feel like the number of governors attending the conference is a waste of the tax payers money because such events are not beneficial to their counties.
One tweep suggested that they should instead stay home and formulate policies that will help their counties then approach the diaspora to invest back home.
He said the unity conference was useless as Kenya had not come out from genocide to require all governors to attend a conference.
How NOT to spend tax payers money. Fact : Stay at home , make and keep the economy working and everything else will fall in place. Then approach diaspora to invest back home. Unity conference like we've just come out of a genocide . Please treat Kenyans with some respect. pic.twitter.com/onbFoBxWgd

But first, we need to revise the constitution (again, sigh), to eliminate the useless county govts; then fine tune the govt to make it leaner & more efficient & focused.
We cannot afford All these govts; & All these politicians whose Only contribution is "technical appearances."

Kenyans have blamed the constitution for creating these flimsy positions that they say are just wasting the taxpayers money.
