KES 6B Uwezo fund sent to constituencies: Govt

02 May 2014, 18:13 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The KES 6 billion Uwezo fund has already been sent out to various constituencies, the government has announced.

The fund, which was set aside following the lack of a March 2013 general election re-run has been exclusively penned in for use by youth and women in the country.

The ministry of devolution confirmed Friday that it had indeed rolled out the money to the various constituencies in the country.

It also confirmed that majority of the fund had been divided equally among constituencies with the remainder divided according to the national poverty index.

" In line with the Public Finance Management (Uwezo Fund) Regulation 2014, 75 percent of the balance has been allocated equally across all constituencies while 25 percent has been disbursed on the basis of the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics poverty index for equalisation purposes, a statement from the ministry read.

It thus meant that the highest allocation in the fund went to Mandera constituency with a total of KES 31.8 million while Lamu East received the lowest amount of KES 14.2 million.

Another KES 180 million was set aside as administration fee for national and constituency offices while KES 465 million will be used for capacity building for fund beneficiaries and target groups.
