Senators meeting was forced to be canceled after a phone call from a top government official on Sunday which caused more confusion to the revenue sharing formula matter.

 The senators were to meet at a hotel in Kikuyu, Kiambu County, where they were to share minds and try to come up with a favorable and just decision before today’s sitting.

It is confirmed that 40 senators drawn from competing sides had confirmed attendance through a WhatsApp group until the phone call changed everything into confusion.

Majority Whip Leader and the senator of Muranga County Irungu kanga’ta was left in a situation where he did not know what to do after putting too much effort on planning the meeting and afterwards it’s termed canceled. Mr. Kang’ata was also seen to soften his heart on his earlier stand and instead called for sobriety among his colleagues on the issue.

He pleaded his colleagues urging them to soften their views and postures saying that the discussion is still ongoing. He also assured Kenyans that something is cooking and they hope that they will produce something.

Mr Kang’ata could not to be drawn into discussing how the meeting was cancelled, or who made the call that led to calling off the talks.

While some of those opposed to the committee’s formula had confirmed attendance, the caller was concerned that the leading lights in the so-called “Team Kenya” had given the effort a wide berth, which in his view undermined the meeting’s outcome.

Kenyans were assured that by Tuesday a solution that is going to be good for the whole country will be found.

former Council of Governors’ chairman has said that its surprising how senators are opposing allocation of resources based on population while devolution was meant to benefit people not acreage.
