The Council of Governors is shocked by the statement of the Acting Cabinet Secretary, for National Treasury Mr Ukur Yattan alleging that fifty Billion (Ksh.50B) has been disbursed to County Governments.
This is not true as money can only be disbursed to County Government once the County Allocation Revenue Act(CARA) is approved and the disbursement schedule gazetted to facilitate approval of the withdraw through the Office of the Controller of Budget.
We take this earliest opportunity to inform the public that upto the release of this statement no money has been disbursed to County Governments as alleged, The council of chairperson said.
In future, we urge the Acting Cabinet Secretary for National Treasury to communicate information that is accurate and truthful to enhance peace and tranquility, kakamega Governor.
This will avert a situation where County Governments are viewed as being unresponsive to the
suffering of the public.
