  • Close to 20 county bosses are in the eye of a major political storm, some instigated by members of their own coalitions.
  • The escalating county power struggles on Wednesday marred President Ruto’s tour of Kiambu where local MPs clashed with Governor Kimani Wamatangi.
  • A plot to impeach Kisii Deputy Governor Robert Monda by 51 MCAs in a squabble linked to Governor Simba Arati and a recent call for the ouster of Nakuru Governor Susan Kihika by Senator Tabitha Karanja are the other recent cases of political bickering in the devolved units.
