President Uhuru Kenyatta Tuesday blasted governors asking them to stop seeing the national government as a threat to their county governments.

The President said his national government has a role to play in ensuring development reaches every part of the country.

He said what his Government has been doing is to bring more development to the grassroots in order to fulfil pledges it made to Kenyans.

President Uhuru added that there was no competition between national government and County governments and that what his government has been doing is to implement development pledges.

“mimi sishindani na magavana, sishindani na mtu , sishindani na mtu yeyote!, nashindana na masaa nilipewa na wananchi, I have no problem with anybody, lakini wasinitishe! tufanye kazi ya wananchi kwanza, na hayo mengine ni baadaye” Uhuru said

The President reacted few days after Mombasa Governor Hassan Ali Joho and his Kilifi counterpart Amason Kingi complained of interference in their County development projects by the National government.

The two had complained against the ongoing national street lightning project being implemented by the National government in various counties accusing the president of playing politics with development projects in the region.
