Senate adjourns motion on proposed revenue sharing

The Senate of Kenya has for the 7th time adjourned the motion on the proposed revenue sharing formula.

Approving the new was Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen who said adjourning the motion will give room for consultation.

“Sen Kipchumba Murkomen has risen Pursuant to Senate Standing Order 105 seeking adjournment of debate on the Motion for the Approval of the Third Basis for Revenue Allocation Among Counties; to give room for further consultation.

Owing to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Senate has resolved that, notwithstanding the Resolution of 21st June, 2018, the sittings outside Nairobi for the Fourth Session, 2020, be suspended.”Said Senate of Kenya.

On Monday evening, Treasury CS Ukur Yatani met the majority leaders and the Council of Governors virtually to discuss the financial standoff in counties.

In their discussions, CS Yatani agreed to disburse the remaining Ksh 29 billion which will be used to pay urgent expenses such as staff salaries and equipment needed to fight the pandemic.

Senator Johnson Sakaja had previously raised a suggestion calling on counties to consider the current allocation and in future a new formula should be put in place as basis of allocation.
