Devolution Ministry transferring assets to counties four years later
The Ministry of Devolution and Planning has begun the process of transferring assets and liabilities that belonged to the non-operational local authorities to county governments.
This comes four years after the establishment of the devolved system of governance in a move aimed at giving county governments greater control of assets in their regions.
Devolution and Planning Cabinet Secretary, Mwangi Kiunjuri, says the Ministry has created the inter-governmental relations technical committee that verify and validate current assets that will be transferred to the county governments.
Non-profit making institutions as well as liabilities such as loans will also be paid, to avoid burdening the devolved units.
County governments will be expected to create county assets and liabilities committees that will work with the central government in identifying and verifying assets that belong to the county.
The exercise is expected to be complete by the end of June.
