The controller of the budget (CoB) has revealed that 30 counties did not spend even a single cent to settle the pending bills in the first three months of the financial year (FY) 2021/2022.
Listed in the recent report by Margaret nyakang'o are the counties of Baringo, Busia, Homa bay,Elkeiyo Marakwet,Isiolo,Kajiado, Kilifi,Kisumu,Kwale,Lamu, Machakos, Marsabit,Meru,Mogori,Nairobi city and Nakuru.
Others are Nandi,Narok,Nyamira,Nyandarua,Samburu,Tana river,Tharaka Nithi,Trans Nzoia,Turkana, Uasin Gishu,Vihiga,Wajir and West Pokot.
This came out to the table on Monday when Nyakang'o appeared before the parliament committe together with financial stake holders.This situation has caused alot of bills to pend to due unsettled debts in those regions.
The matter will be discussed today in the parliament to know why the named counties have failed to gather for their bills.This has brought mix reactions whether the funds are set aside for the coming general election or was mismanaged.
As for my point of view I think the money were embezzled on other petty projects.
