Governors and deputy governors allied to Azimio political coalition have been exempted from taking part in the anti-government demonstrations slated for Monday next week.
Kakamega deputy governor Ayub Savula says Azimio county bosses and their deputies have been allowed to stay away from the protests.
“We have sought permission from our leader Raila Odinga as governors and deputy governors not to participate in activities of Maandamano as the executive.”
“So you will not see any governor participating in demonstrations in this country because we are not part of it as the executive but, MPs can take part,” Savula said.

At the same time, Savula said that county bosses have no powers to declare a public holiday.
He said a public holiday is declared by the national government through a gazette notice and so he was not aware of any holiday on Monday.
