Amani National Congress party leader Musalia Mudavadi says Kenyans should resist any attempts by the ruling Jubilee administration to kill devolution through a bill sponsored by Murang’a county senator Kembi Gitura that proposes to scrap off Nairobi County.  Mudavadi says Kembi Gitura’s bill is a veiled attempt by Jubilee to convert all urban settlements into administrative units controlled by the national government and starve counties off revenue.  Constitutional lawyer Paul Muite says the proposed amendments will fundamentally alter the structure of devolved government and must be subjected to a referendum
