MCAs demand Sh50M each from Anyang' Nyong'o

Governor cornered by MCAs in his county

Kisumu MCAs demand Sh50 million allocation each to approve Governor Nyong'o 2019/20 budget

Kisumu County ward representatives have demanded a Sh50 million allocation in exchange for an approval of Governor Anyang' Nyongo's 2019/2020 budget.

The allocation which has been labeled as a "ward development fund" is one of the conditions they have issued the county government with in order to adopt the proposed budget.

The MCAs have also demanded to have the county government provide a list of the county's Sh2 billion pending bills for their perusal.

 Majority Leader Kenneth Onyango refuted claims that the demands were tough stating that the aim of the assembly is to streamline county expenditure.

"We would wish to expedite this budget making process because it is not in the interest of the Assembly to hold the county hostage," he stated.

Kisumu Deputy Governor puts MCAs on notice

Kisumu Deputy Governor Matthews Owili responded to the MCAs stating that the county administration will consider their demands.

He, however, cautioned them that their demand to have the Assembly chambers rebuilt at a cost of Sh600 million would not be considered.
