The Commission on Revenue Allocation (CRA) chair, Micah Cheserem, has defended devolution following reports that counties were mismanaging resources allocated to them.

Speaking to the press after the conclusion of his two-day visit of various projects in Nandi County, Cheresem said that corruption is not an invention of the county governments but existed even before the devolved system of governance.

He, however, noted that cases of financial impropriety were reported at the county level and there is a need to put in place measures to address this.

According to the CRA chair, some counties are doing well in managing their resources despite the general report that counties are corrupt.

Cheserem commended the development efforts made by the County Government of Nandi saying that the county leadership was implementing the devolution agenda well.

In his statement, Cheserem said that his mission to Nandi was to assess the progress of devolution in the county and confirm allegations of misuse of funds allocated to it.
