Press Statement

18th October 2021

Chairman CoG2019Fellow Kenyans,
Members of the Press, 
Introduction
We have just concluded a full Council meeting to discuss issues affecting County Governments and we would like to address you on the resolutions from the meeting.
1. COG Position on the Division of Revenue the Financial Year 2022/2023
Following in-depth discussions on the issue, we wish to reiterate that, we reject in totality the proposal by CRA that recommends a non-increment of the County Equitable Share which is Kshs. 370 billion.
To safeguard Devolution and to ensure optimal implementation of devolved functions by County Governments, the Council proposes additional funding of Kshs. 381.45 bringing the total allocation to counties to Kshs. 751.45 billion as contained in the Constitution of Kenya Amendment Bill, 2020.
The bill recommends that counties be allocated not less than 35 per cent of all the revenue collected by the National Government.
As you are aware, the bill had a lot of goodwill as it was passed in both houses of Parliament and in 45 out of the 47 County Assemblies.
Further, we maintain that the Road Maintenance Levy Fund ought to be disbursed to counties as conditional grants.
In this regard, the Council will engage the relevant institutions to ensure our proposals are actualized.
