Kenya's 47 county governments receive zero funding from the Treasury

None of the counties received a cent of the Sh314 billion they are entitled as equitable share of national government revenue.

According to the latest Kenya Gazette notice, none of the counties received a cent of the Sh314 billion they are entitled to as equitable share of national government revenue.

Governors have in recent past complained of delayed Treasury disbursement amid dwindling own-revenue collections, which have resulted to delays in suppliers’ payments and workers’ salaries.

The Treasury has in the past blamed the country’s financial situation on failure by the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) to hit its projected tax collection targets.

Pending bills

The shortfalls in revenue collection at the counties coupled with over-commitment of resources has also been blamed for ballooning counties pending bills.

Pending bills in the year ending June had hit Sh99.2 billion at the end of January, with some counties grappling with lawsuits from suppliers and contractors.
