Governors in court over funds
Governors are now threatening to sue the national government over alleged failure to disburse Ksh 280 billion to counties.
The Council of Governors (COG) chair and Meru Governor Peter Munya said the counties will move to court to compel the national government to disburse the money that belongs to the counties.
Speaking in Timau, Meru County where he opened Sirimon Dispensary, Munya said that the government is withholding the much needed funds which are meant for hospitals, roads and other county projects affecting service delivery and development in the counties.
Munya was quick to point out that they are not fighting the national government but they are advocating for funds to reach the people in order to serve their interests and that many counties are now crippled as they lack funds to carry out their duties.
He added that they are tired of waiting for the funds and will push for their funds in court.
Munya hinted that senior lawyers Paul Muite and Ahmednassir Abdullahi will file the case on behalf of the counties.
