Ruto says governors must account for counties' funds

Kisii - Governors should account for the money allocated to them as provided for in the Constitution before pushing for a referendum to have county funds increased.
Deputy President William Ruto said governors should honour Senate’s summonses to explain how they have spent the money they were given instead of threatening the government with calls for a referendum, Daily Nation reports.
The DP claimed that the governors do not want the Senate, the National Assembly, the County Assembly, the Controller of Budget and the Auditor General to hold them accountable.
The governors want the allocation to county governments increased from 15 per cent of the national revenue to 45 per cent in a referendum that they are pushing for.
