County governments will receive three hundred and sixteen point five billion shillings in shareable revenue in the financial year 2020/2021 . . . the announcement came following the deputy president William Ruto chaired intergovernmental budget and economic council, IBEC, meeting Tuesday, with the figure being attributed to depressed revenue collection in the country.
The same time, the controller of budget Margret Nyakang’o who was present at the intergovernmental meeting, dismissed claims that her office was out to frustrate distribution of funds to counties, saying that her office will release the funds to the counties as soon as possible.
