Governors insist they need protection from court process while in office like Uhuru Kenyatta

- The county chiefs are representatives of people and heads of government and needed to be handled with decorum

- Governors have denied they are calling for non-prosecution of economic and financial crimes

- They insist existing laws must be respected in war on corruption

- The county bosses say the government should not use war on graft to attract media and public attention

The Council of Governors (COG) have stood by the statement they issued on Monday, July 9, concerning their protection from prosecution while still serving in office.

In a statement sent to newsrooms on Thursday, July 12, seen by TUKO.co.ke the governors said they had been unfairly criticised over the statement but would not renege on issues they raised on the announcement which ignited massive public scorn.

COG chairman Josephat Nanok said county chiefs value good governance, integrity, transparency and accountability which are national values and principles entrenched in the constitution but would not tolerate breaking of the law in the name of fighting corruption.

The chairperson who is also Turkana county governor said governors are elected by individuals whom they represent and action could only be taken against them when they break public trust.

They reiterated arresting of leaders must be respectful of existing laws or else war on corruption would lose legitimacy and credibility.
