Nairobi — President Uhuru Kenyatta has signed into law the County Allocation of Revenue Amendment Bill.

The signing of the Bill now paves way for the National Treasury to disburse funds to County Governments.

The new Act of Parliament sets out accurately the conditional allocations to county governments from loans and grants thereby aligning the County Allocation of Revenue Act, 2017 to the provisions of the Division of Revenue Act, 2017.

President Kenyatta said the disbursement of funds will now enable county governments to undertake their responsibilities and deliver on their mandate.

"The national government is committed in ensuring devolution succeeds and will continue to facilitate county governments to deliver on their mandate," said the President.
