The Transition Authority has already deployed staff to counties in readiness for the devolved government. Forming this aspect is the devolved units, complete with the Executive and Legislative arm. Thus the 47 counties now await the election of governors to lead the Executive Arm (Executive Committees) and County Assembly Representatives to sit in the Assembly. Chairman of the Transition Authority Kinuthia Wamwangi said the deployed civil servants are working round the clock to prepare the ground for the governors and members of the County Assembly. Devolution forms the heart of the new Constitution and the charter recommends that at least 15 per cent of the national revenue must be channeled to the counties by the central government.
