Senate Committee finally agrees on revenue sharing formula

A 12 member Senate Committee has finally agreed on a proposed County revenue sharing formula.

The report will be tabled in the house this afternoon.

The special committee was appointed to resolve the revenue sharing quagmire after disagreeing for over nine times, throwing countries into financial reds.

Taking to their social media accounts, Chair of the committee Johnson Sakaja tweeted “deal” while Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen also tweeted “Deal, white smoke”.

The senators tasked the 12-member committee chaired by Bungoma Senator Moses Wetagula and his Nairobi counterpart Sakaja to interrogate the proposals and present a motion to the Senate for debate on Tuesday next week.

The committee is now expected to present their proposals to the house this afternoon before debate resumes.

It happens barely a day after the Council of Governors (CoG) chaired by Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oranya ordered all Counties to send their staff home due to the unending stalemate debate on the revenue division formula.

“Due to the ongoing stalemate on funds flow County Governments have no choice but to proceed to shutdown and suspend all non-essential services.”
