Deputy President William Ruto says the problems facing devolution do not necessarily call for the amendment of the Constitution.

Speaking during Ikolomani MP Ben Washiali’s Homecoming ceremony in Kakamega County on Sunday, he said the teething problems do not mean that time was ripe to change the Constitution, while saying the Jubilee administration will surmount such challenges.

Ruto said all leaders should work together in ensuring devolution of services to counties was successful.

As a show of the Government’s commitment to the full implementation of the Constitution, the Deputy President pointed out that county governments have been funded up to 32 percent to implement development projects.

He said the aim of devolution in the Constitution was to solve the problem of marginalisation and inequality of resources in the country. The deputy president said teamwork and unity among leaders was key to the success of the implementation of the constitution.
