What you need to know:

  • The committee wanted the Budget to be pegged at Sh32 billion, arguing that the local revenue raised by the county was only Sh8.2 billion.
  • The move came just two days to the deadline for county assemblies to submit their budget estimates to the exchequer.
  • The Public Health department will get the largest share at Sh6.3 billion or 27 per cent of the allocation.
