Governor accuses Treasury of witholding KES 550M development funds

09 July 2015, 09:35 Joseph Njung'eh

Kirinyaga - Kirinyaga Governor, Joseph Ndathi has hit out at the Treasury for withholding KES 550 million meant for various development programs in the just ended 2014/2015 financial year.

"This withholding of about 18 percent of our annual budget has greatly affected our development agenda for this County and I hope those responsible will rectify the shortcoming,’’ he said.

The Governor was speaking to journalists after assenting to the 2015/2016 budget proposals amounting to KES 5.3 billion.

Assenting to the proposal at his Kutus town offices, Ndathi cautioned his chief officers to stop empty rhetoric as members of the public want positive results.

Ndathi said a progress review on project implementation will be undertaken in January next year where non performing officers will be required to show cause why they should not be fired.

“From now on, officers will be required  to justify why they earn the huge salaries short of which we will have no alternative but to send non performers packing,’’ he warned.

Ndathi said the budget proposal he had just assented to does not favour any arm of the County Government in the area.

He said implementers of projects in the County should move with speed and roll out various developmental activities factored in the budget.

The Governor said out of the KES 5.3 annual budget, KES.3 billion will go to the recurrent expenditure while KES 2.3 billion will be for projects.
