We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

The assembly today gave governor Joseph Lenku Sh 11,256,224,822 to expend this year after weeks of pushing and pulling between the MCAs and the executive.

The total amount consists of Sh7, 954,768,229 equitable shares, own-source revenue, Sh1.605, 355,500, Sh285, 399,846 from conditional grants and additional Sh1.5 billion revenue received from an equitable share from the national government. 

The total resource envelop, therefore, has grown by 12.2 per cent compared with FY 2020/2021 budget, and the executive says this has been attributed to the additional Sh1.5 billion revenue received from an equitable share from the national government. 

The budget report is higher than that of the previous year (Sh9.4 billion).

Kimiti said ever since the inception of the devolved units Kajiado has never realized its target for its source revenue despite the county being ranked among the top in potential among the counties if proper mechanisms are put in place. 

“With the proper mechanism in place, local revenue can finance close to 60 per cent of its budget,” Kimiti said. 

Kimiti told KNU that analysis of the performance from July to May FY 2020/21 was 45 per cent, the amount collected was Sh766.7 million against a target of Sh1.68 billion.

He attributed the underperformance in revenue collection of 50 per cent to the intervention measures (removal of market/barter fees, slaughter fee and bus park fees) implemented by the county government to cushion businesses from the negative impacts of the Covid- 19. 

The chairman said equitable share received during the same period was Sh4.83 billion compared to an expected target of Ksh.6.42 billion, and that represents 75 per cent performance. 

“This indicated that there was delayed reimbursement of Sh1.59 billion from the national government. Total grants received amounted to Sh509.2 million against a target of Sh1.58 billion representing 32 per cent performance,” said the chairman.
