press release

President Uhuru Kenyatta today at State House Nairobi, signed into law the County Allocation of Revenue Amendment Bill.

The signing of the Bill 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 enable county governments to undertake their responsibilities and deliver on their mandate.

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

Present during the signing of the Bill were the Deputy President William Ruto, Head of Public Service and Chief of Staff Joseph Kinyua, Speaker of National Assembly Justin Muturi and his senate counterpart Kenneth Lusaka, Leader of Majority in the National Assembly Aden Duale and Majority Leader in the Senate Kipchumba Murkomen.
