CDF boards urged to work with County admins

18 September 2013, 14:44 Rodger Buluma

Constituency Development Fund (CDF) boards in Mombasa County have been urged to incorporate the County administration in their development plans to avoid duplicated development programmes.

This was said by the County executives in a consultative meeting that was held in a Mombasa hotel on Monday to get a picture of how development programs are being featured across the County.

In the meeting, it was discovered that a contradiction exists between the County administration's mandate and the CDF development mandate after it emerged that the Jomvu CDF board had incorporated the refilling of Bangladesh road as one of their prime projects while the same had been factored in by the County administration in its budgeting for the carpeting of roads across the County.

Speaking at the meeting, the Mombasa County governor said that the same was experienced during his tenure as the MP for Kisauni where the Constituency had liaised with the defunct Mombasa Municipal Council to have the Kisauni - Karisa Maitha road re-carpeted only for them to find out at a later stage that the Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) had set aside up to KES 50 million for the same.

He said that the only way to avoid such contradictions from occurring is by involving the County administration and the Mombasa County community at large.

The County Cabinet secretaries encouraged the CDF board members from the six constituencies in the Mombasa County to have their planned expenditure proposals submitted to the County executives for review and critique where necessary.

As at present, all the six CDF boards in collaboration with the County administration are conducting a data collection from all over the Mombasa County on the projects that should be frontlined in the 2013-2014 expenditure programmes.
