Wako calls for costing of devolved functions before budgeting

09 May 2014, 12:42 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - Former Attorney General, Amos Wako has faulted the national government for failing to allocate enough resources to the counties.

Speaking at a retreat in Mombasa, Wako said there was no fairness and justice in the last budget and the current budget.

“The budget had been prepared on a wrong footage. Nobody did the costing of the devolved functions in the counties before the budget was prepared,” said Wako.

The former AG said the Transition Authority has not performed its mandate in totality and urged the national government not to repeat the same mistake next year.

“Before the next budget is prepared, the Authority should be given authority to determine the costing of functions in the counties,” said Wako.

He said a proper analysis of the costs of functions will enable the government to approximate correctly the resources needed to be allocated to every county.

Wako said the retreat in Mombasa was meant to promote the relationships between the Senate and the county assemblies and called upon the county governments to be supportive of the legal matters.

“There are many areas and activities in the counties that may require legal interpretations and the Senate can readily provide interpretations to the counties,” said Wako.

He said that many counties have formulated laws that are not good and needing reviews.

Wako said that such relationships will develop the county representatives’ capacity in handling legal matters.
