TA: Parliament has key to more county cash

06 October 2014, 12:04

Nairobi - The Transition Authority Chairman Kinuthia Wamwangi has said county governments would get more funds if Parliament quickly approves Auditor General’s reports.

Wamwangi said the sharing of national revenue is guided by audited reports approved by Parliament.

He asked referendum proponents to stop their campaigns and instead press the National Assembly Public Accounts committee led by Ababu Namwamba to quickly approve the reports and have more funds given to county governments, The Standard reports.

Wamwangi’s statement comes days after the Chairman of the Council of Governors Isaac Ruto said that the governors’ Pesa Mashinani team was ready to join with Cord’s Okoa Kenya team to push for a referendum to have more funds allocated to county governments to spur development.
