Blow To MCAs As Car Grant Offered By Uhuru Is Temporary Halted

The Members of county assemblies (MCAs) are facing another big challenge that will affect the car grants that had been offered by president Uhuru Kenyatta during his visit to Sagana.

Chief Executive Officer Ann Gitau has written to the Salaries Renumeration Commission (SRC) claiming that the offer may not be effected soon as earlier anticipated.

The Controller of Budget Margaret Nyakango has also warned that most counties had budgeted for a car loan facility and not a grant therefore the budgetary laws of counties can not be ignored.

The SRC director Lyn Mengich had already consented to MCAs car grant offer by the president an issue that some critics had termed unlawful.

It is not clear how long it will take for the MCAs to access the Kenya shillings four billion offer.

Political leaders allied to William Ruto were against the offer , they claimed that it was a form of bribe that is being used to entice MCAs so that they can endorse the Building Bridges Constitutional amendment proposal.

BBI is in it's final stages in all the 47 counties across the country before it is brought back to the people for a popular vote.
