BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,15TH JULY 2019-Kenyans around the supreme court bullrings in Nairobi were on Monday treated to a dramatic scene  as  Governors  forced their way into the Supreme Court Buildings, to submit a petition.

Led by Council of Governors Chairperson, Wycliffe Oparanya, they marched meticulously together in solidarity, chanting protest songs.Some of the governors were also  heard  chanting  ”haki yetu haki yetu”

Governors who also joined are Mwangi wa Iria(Murang’a), Martin Wambora (Embu), Anyang’ Nyong’o (Kisumu), Kivutha Kibwana (Makueni) among others.

MCAs from various counties were also present.

The county chiefs  are seeking to compel parliament to pass the Division of Revenue Allocation Bill 2019 which stipulates how money should be disbursed to counties.

The bill collapsed in parliament after The National Assembly and The Senate failed to agree on the amount to be allocated to the devolved units.

Oparanya has since accused The National Assembly of holding counties hostage through the collapsed bill.

The Bill is crucial  since it is the one that  okays  funds to be released from the National Treasury to be given to counties.
