Supreme Court of Kenya has today made another landmark Ruling. In its ruling today, the Supreme Court has mandated the Senate to audit funds spent by county governments and further summon the respective governors to explain their expenditures.
The Supreme Court further ordered the governors to report on the revenue streams in the county, inclusive of the taxes collected and any other funds received through donations. Supreme Court also ruled that Funds disbursed from the national government to the county governments will be documented as evidence before the senators.
The Senate, led by the speaker Amason Kingi and his deputy Murungi Kathuri was also mandated to follow up on public funds and the conduct of the governors to ensure taxpayers’ money is used as budgeted and seal loopholes like tender allocations, contractors, ghost workers, and faulty revenue collection systems which have led to lost of public funds.
Besides revenue allocation and spending, governors will also be answerable to the Senate on any matter concerning the county.
