Mt. Kenya Governors revive one man, one shilling debate

Nyeri Governor Mutahi Kahiga

Governors from Mt. Kenya have revived push for the one man, one vote campaign as the Commission on Revenue Allocation now kick-starts views collection on the 4th revenue sharing formula.

Speaking at a round-table meeting with CRA commissioners at Nairobi’s Movenpick hotel, the Governors insisted on a formula that speaks to the region’s prowess for production, insisting the three earlier formulas have greatly been designed to take away from the region.

Nyeri Governor Mutahi Kahiga calling on the CRA to allocate resources as per a region’s contribution to the national cake as opposed to equal treatment at the table.

Consequently, the chairman of the Central Region Economic Bloc (CEREB) has urged for the adoption of a baseline shareable revenue amount that would largely go into operations of a county before any other parameter is used.

On its part, the CRA now says it will seek common views from the different economic blocs with the aim of including their views in the final report that would form the 4th generation revenue sharing formula.
