Makueni to de­volve 60% of projects’ funds to wards

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

The Makueni county as­sem­bly has unan­i­mously passed a bill that would de­volve funds to the wards. Ac­cord­ing to the County Eq­ui­table De­vel­op­ment Bill, 60 per cent of funds set aside for de­vel­op­ment will be shared equally among the wards. It was spon­sored by Kasikeu MCA Paul Malinda. The bill pro­poses the es­tab­lish­ment of Ward Project De­vel­op­ment Com­mit­tees to man­age the de­volved cash. “It en­sures res­i­dents have a say on projects,” Malinda said on Thurs­day last week dur­ing de­bate.
