The association, which meets on Thursday in Mombasa for its Annual General Meeting, is set to endorse several amendments, which have already been accepted by the Registrar of Societies to align to the county governments that will come in place after the General Election.
The organisation will now be named the Association of County Governments, Cities, Municipalities and Towns of Kenya to be headed by a County Governor.
The team comprised mayors and County Council chairmen, who endorsed him during the mayors’ forum for another term, during tomorrow’s elections.
A letter signed by Deputy Registrar of Societies Joseph Onyango dated September 12, last year says, “Your amended constitution has been accepted in the new name Algak – The Association of County Governments, Cities, Municipalities and Towns of Kenya”. The association is also seeking to extend the two-year term for the chairmanship to five years.
There will also be a governors’ forum, a speakers’ forum, secretaries’ forum and a county assembly forum, which will all fall under the chairmanship of a County Governor to be elected by the association, Kores, who is the Ol Kejuado County Council chairman, said.
The meeting also informed members findings of a team, which was mandated to calculate revenue required by each county under the devolved system.
