Uasin Gishu County Governor Jackson Mandago EGH has called on the Senate to expedite passage of the County Revenue Allocation Bill.

Mandago said the delay in passing the bill has caused services in counties to stagnate.

Speaking in Kendu Bay, Homa Bay County today, during the internment of Francis Okwaro Aduda, father to County Director Procurement Kennedy Okwaro, Mandago said The Senate should reach a binding consensus because counties are hurting with many stalled activities.

“I would like to urge The Senate to move with speed by approving the County Revenue Allocation Bill and this will ensure counties get much-needed funds to run their activities,” said Mandago.

This comes after there was a standoff for over 7 times in the senate on the County Revenue Allocation Bill.

The 12-member team formed by the Senate to reach a consensus over the controversial formula made the announcement on Wednesday that they had made steps in reaching an agreement after eight days of intense negotiations on the third basis for sharing the national cake among the 47 devolved units.

“Support the more money to counties to spur development in counties,” Mandago added.
