President Uhuru Kenyatta did not also attend the devolution conference physically but delivered his opening remarks live from South Africa.

The theme of this year’s conference was “Multi-level Governance for Climate Action: Sub National Mobilisation in Unlocking the Full Potential of Climate Action during after pandemics.”

The conference was officialy opened on Tuesday and was set to come to a close on Friday.

On the opening day, the event was graced by former Prime Minister Raila Odinga as well as a couple of Cabinet Secretaries led by Fred Matiang’i (Interior), Joe Mucheru (ICT), Eugene Wamalwa (Defence) and Monica Juma (Energy).

Governors allied to the DP, however, gave the event a wide berth.

In attendance were county chiefs presumed to be loyal to the “Handshake” partners. They included; Council of Governors chairman and Embu Governor Martin Wambora, Alfred Mutua (Machakos), Charity Ngilu (Kitui) and host Kivutha Kibwana.
