Government Has no More Money to Offer- Uhuru tells Governors

President Uhuru tells off governors demand for more funds

President Uhuru Kenyatta has told County Bosses to stop demanding for more allocations of funds, saying the national government cannot afford to give more than what has been allocated.

Uhuru, who was speaking at the funeral of the mother of former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth, told the governors to be realistic and focus on developing their counties with the available resources and end the stalemate that has paralyzed operations in counties.

You cannot eat what you have not produced. We would want to allocate you the money you are requesting but we don’t have it. Please, Governors, utilize what you have,” President Kenyatta said.

The national government allocates  Sh316 billion to the devolved units but the governors have been demanding for Sh335 billion.

Governors and senators lodged a case in court after disagreeing with Members of the National Assembly on the Division of Revenue Bill, occasioning a stalemate as most counties are yet to pass their budgets.

The Council of Governors (C0G) filed a petition at the Supreme Court on 15 July, over the ongoing stalemate over Division of Revenue Bill.

The Head of State emphasized the importance of national unity and peace saying a cohesive Kenya will guarantee economic prosperity for all.
