The County Government of Mombasa held the 2nd Devolution Sensitization Week from 25th to 27th September at the famous Makadara Grounds. The objective of the three days’ event was to create a platform for the County to inform the public the achievements of devolution since inception.
The event was officially opened by H.E. The Governor of Mombasa, Hassan Ali Joho. He reminded thousands of participants at the event as well as the citizens of the county and the country at large, about the fruits of devolution.
“Everyone can see the difference,” he said, “between devolved governance and centralization…. we are now able to decide our destiny.”
All the Eleven County Departments, including the County Assembly and the County Public Service Board showcased their contribution to the success of the county. Wananchi turned up in large numbers and were thrilled by the words of the Governor as well as his promise for the future. They came, saw, admired and went back home contented with the services of County 001.
