Yatani hints at Kenya being broke, services in counties grind to a halt

What you need to know:

  • Council of Governors chairman Wycliffe Oparanya said counties have not received their October, November, December 2020 and January 2021 disbursements totalling Sh94.7 billion.
  • The CoG boss added that counties have not received money for several months and not just two as reported by Mr Yatani.

Treasury has indicated for the first time that the government is running on empty, and that it can’t fund counties in a timely manner.
