He said  some  officers at the National Government had vested interest with  money meant for  counties  kept at the Ministry of Health. ”While health services are fully devolved, the National Government  is handling the maternal health care fund  instead of  county governments.
Agriculture is also fully devolved  but the National Government is still  keeping fertilizer in Nairobi.  Counties need  to have autonomy of all  devolved functions ,” he said.
Among the dignitaries who toured Busia stand on Thursday includes, Uasin  Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago , Siaya Governor Cornell Rasanga,  Controller of Budget Agnes Odhiambo and Busia County Executive Committee member for health Dr Maurice Siminyu.
