Mr. Peter Wanyama stated that the governor-elects were required to follow the procedures laid down by the Public Finance Management Act should they wish to allocate the funds set aside for their swearing in ceremonies.

According to Wanyama, the re-allocation of the funds must be done through a supplementary budget that is to be presented in the assembly for adoption by the MCAs.

Sonko had earlier on rejected the 25 million shillings allocated for his swearing in ceremony opting to direct the funds to paying delayed salaries owed to the county government employees.

Nyeri governor-elect Wahome Gakuru also rejected his 5 million shillings ordering for it to be directed to paying electricity bills for Karatina hospital.
