Governors want revenue allocation formula impasse resolved

The Council of governors is pleading with the Senate to resolve the impasse on the revenue allocation formula saying Counties are in a crisis.

The Chairperson Governor Wycliffe Oparanya says the Senate should adopt the existing formula if a resolution on the new formula is not found.

Oparanya alongside other Governors say the continued adjournments by the Senate on the matter indicate there is a lot of division yet there should be no impasse since there is an existing formula.

The Governors have warned that Counties have almost run out of funds which will affect critical services at a time when the Country is battling the coronavirus pandemic.

They say should the Senate adopt the 3rd generation formula, Counties that will lose money should be cushioned against the deficit to meet their already formulated budgets.

Oparanya was categorical that Counties are facing a cash crisis saying the 29.7 billion shillings outstanding balance for the month of June 2020 will all be spent on salaries.

The Governors have in the meantime urged health workers unions to consider the current stalemate before downing their tools and be empathetic to the suffering Kenyans.
