CoG TreasuryChairman,Finance Committee Council of Governors H.E. Wycliffe Oparanya, Governor Kakamega County and H.E. Isaac Ruto Governor Bomet County on 2nd August 2016 met with Cabinet Secretary Treasury Mr Henry Rotich to discuss among other issues; the adoption of the conditional grants guidelines and the gazettement of the County specific bank overdraft guidelines.

While the Bank overdraft is a facility for cash maintenance for both the National and County Governments, the Counties have been unable to access the facility due to the lack of guidelines. CS Rotich assured the Governors that the overdraft guidelines shall be finalized and gazetted. Meanwhile the National Treasury assured the Council that it shall disburse the Counties share of revenue to all the 47 County Governments as per the approved disbursement schedule.

The issue of conditional grants disbursements shall be entrenched in the guidelines which are about to be gazetted by the National Treasury. This process is supposed to ensure that Counties additional allocation of funds as conditional grants are directly transferred to respective County Revenue Accounts as provided for by the Constitution under Article 207
