By Asha Mwana Khamisi

The second annual summit for Senators and Members of County assemblies kicks off at a Mombasa hotel this week.

County Assemblies Forum (CAF)acting chairman, Johnson Osoi, said the summit aims at strengthening inter-governmental relations and enhance public participation in governance and devolution in general.

In a message published on the CAF website, Osoi, who is also the Speaker of Kajiado County Assembly, said the conference will also engage relevant officers and partners to facilitate smooth transition after the August 8 elections.

The conference is also expected to provide a platform for participants to evaluate the performance of both levels of governments in matters of policy, law, accountability, good governance, and service delivery, among others.

The conference is the last one before Kenyans go to polls in August.

The first summit was also held in Mombasa in May last year.
