MANDERA COUNTY: THERE IS NEED FOR EQUALITY & ACCOUNTABILITY




Summary:
Mandera, with an increment of Sh1.2 billion, is the second biggest beneficiary should the new formula be implemented.

The Commission on Revenue Allocation (CRA), chaired by Mr. Micah Cheserem, launched marginalization Policy on 27th, February, 2013 at Stanley Hotel, Nairobi.

The Commission on Revenue Allocation was established under Article 215 of the Constitution of Kenya 2010 with the main mandate of recommending the basis for equitable sharing of revenues raised nationally between the national and the county governments, and sharing of revenues among the county governments.

Populous counties will receive the most money when revenue is shared between national and county Governments with Nairobi, Kakamega and Bungoma receiving over Sh7billion each to top the list, the Commission on Revenue Allocation revealed.

Using the latest audited figures of Sh610 billion in government revenues collected last year, the CRA proposes distributing Sh200 billion to the counties leaving the national government with Sh410 billion for central government operations.

Mandera County, tops with an increment of Sh1.2 billion, making it the second biggest beneficiary in the country.
