COUN­TIES WANT FUNDS IN­CREASED

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

In March, Kakamega Gov­er­nor Wy­cliffe Oparanya said gover­nors were keen on amend­ing the Con­sti­tu­tion to in­crease fund­ing to coun­ties. The Pesa Mashinani ref­er­en­dum push, to­gether with the op­po­si­tion’s and Ju­bilee’s Imar­isha Kat­iba, were meant to strengthen de­vo­lu­tion. Gover­nors said the county sys­tem was un­der threat from the na­tional gov­ern­ment. They ac­cused the state of starving coun­ties and try­ing to roll back de­vo­lu­tion.
