Governors optimistic counties will receive more funds from government

03 August 2016, 07:31 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Council of Governors chairman, Peter Munya has expressed optimism that the national government will this time round give counties money for development of rural roads.

Munya, who is also the Meru Governor, said counties are facing major challenges due to lack of funds for certain functions yet they are expected to perform them.

“Counties never received cash from National Treasury to do roads under them in the ended financial year. We are hoping that things will be different this time round now that we are in a new financial year,” Munya said in Nyeri.

Last month, governors said the budgetary allocation to counties was too little.

The 2016/17 Budget read in the National Assembly by National Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich gave counties KES 304 billion.

KES 208 billion was the equitable share from the National Treasury and KES 23 billion a conditional grant.
