MCA's joy cut short on car grants by the president Uhuru

Just a few days after the Members of County Assemblies (MCAs) were granted a car pledge grant, the move by the SRC left many Kenyans in anger claiming the misuse of public funds as the MCAs get a higher salary that can cater for themselves. This seemed to catch the attention of the president Uhuru hence the president said they may have to wait a little longer to benefit from Sh4.5 billion car grant pledge.

Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) chair Lynn Mengich had gave the green light to governors to effect the conversion of the car loan into car grants in line with President Kenyatta’s pledge to MCAs, the Controller of Budget (CoB) is raising fundamental concerns that could slow implementation.

In a letter to SRC Chief Executive Officer Ann Gitau, the Controller of Budget Margaret Nyakango has cautioned that most counties budgeted for a car loan facility and not a grant.

“In others, the car loan facility is being implemented through a legislation enacted to create a revolving fund. These legislations do not provide for issuance of car grant,” said Ms Nyakango. The letter was copied to Council of Governors (CoG) and County Assemblies Forum (CAF).
