The County Government of Kericho has today unveiled her biggest ever budget for the 2021/22 Financial Year. Through the Head of Treasury and Economic Planning Hon. Dr. Patrick Mutai, Kericho County has revealed a staggering figure of 8.6 Billion Shillings.

This is the biggest budget for Kericho County since the start of devolution eight years ago. The budget covers the Health Sector, Development Sector and the Production Section.

Kericho County was listed among other 12 counties that were highly affected by the dreaded coronavirus pandemic in the recent weeks. However, this huge budget for the South Rift County will mean a vast improvement in the Health Sector.

Further, Kericho being a main producer of tea, the production sector will reap from this financial year's budget. Apart from giving low interest rate loans to farmers, tea, coffee and maize producers will receive subsidised fertilizers. This will in turn increase the amount of production in the County.
