Ruto yesterday opposed any attempt to abolish or merge counties as well as create another devolution structure as proposed by Raila, describing it as “a treacherous anti-devolution narrative”.

Ruto argued that the success and future of devolution would not be determined by size or population – a national census which will inform the boundaries review is due in August – but by creative, innovative and visionary leadership.

“The debate about size and mergers is a treacherous anti-devolution narrative that is simplistic, retrogressive and seeks to reverse the hard earned gains of our reform endeavours,” Ruto said

He termed the proposals by Raila “a sly attempt to sneak a selfish, self preservationist agenda into the national conversation with the aim of derailing the country from the development trajectory”.

The DP was reacting to the proposals by Raila at the same conference on Wednesday in which the opposition leader said the Bomas draft, rejected in 2005 referendum and which had proposed 14 regions, was the better option.
