Kisumu County Governor Prof Anyang Nyong’o is concerned that the public are bound to suffer the consequences due to the stalemate to resolve the counties revenue allocation.
Nyong’o says the National Assembly and the Senate must put into considerations the plight of millions of Kenyans who are waiting for funds for development.
He says the public will start suffering if the stalemate persists noting that there is need for an amicable solution to break the impasse.
Nyong’o says functions on water, food, environment, health and access to roads is dear to the lives of Kenyans and they cannot afford to miss them.
Speaking on Sunday in Nyabondo Catholic Church during a funds drive for the church in Nyakach constituency, Nyong’o says the Bill should be passed as a matter of urgency to pull out the country from the quagmire.
He says it is unconstitutional to pass the national budget without agreeing upon the division of revenue Bill.
Nyong’o also took the opportunity to plead with his County Assembly to speedily pass the budget for the financial year 2019/2020.
He says negotiations between the executive and the Assembly are in an advanced stage and soon the budget will be tabled.
Nyong’o told the people of Kisumu not to panic since the matter is being resolved so that his administration can roll out development to the wards.
