Governor Kuti in hiding

Governor Kuti in hiding

The County boss has again skipped a meeting called by elders to find consensus over the legal notice that has divided Isiolo leadership right at the center. In a closed-door meeting today in Isiolo the members of parliament dubbed ‘pentagon’ raised their concerns over the legal notice which they have insisted is illegal and should be revoked. However, the Governor who has rallied his team in calling for an amendment of the legal notice decided to snub the crucial meeting without any explanation. The members of parliament have insisted they are willing to have a dialogue with the County but cited ill motive from the County. The elders have now vowed to back the members of parliament and will rally the whole community in calling for a revocation of the legal notice no. 150. NFD Dispatch has since learned that the County Governor had earlier this year wrote to the Ministry of Lands and Physical Planning to request for adjudication of land in Isiolo County. Governor Kuti now appears like an isolated man and it will only be a matter of time to see if he can bow down to pressure and call for revocation of the gazette notice.
