Kitui in safe hands, CRA official commends Malombe on use of public funds

A Commission on Revenue Allocation[CRA] official lauded Kitui Governor Julius Malombe for prudent use of public funds. CRA commissioner Benedict Muasya  said the expansive county was in the right hands on use of taxpayer's revenue. "We know Kitui is now in the right hands and we want to support the leadership of Governor Malombe as CRA so that we realize prudent use of public funds as per the PFMA which guides all of us in the public sector", said Muasya.

The Commissioner was speaking when he met the Kitui county boss to follow up on the progress of the CRA's 3rd policy that is aimed at addressing marginalization of far flung sub locations.

The Marginalized areas in Kitui County were allocated KSh534 million of the Equalization Fund to address key devolved functions such as healthcare, water, education and maintenance of the roads infrastructure. The funds will be implemented in the 2023/2024 financial year.

CRA had picked 63 sub locations in the 2nd Policy to bring development closer to wananchi. Governor Malombe agreed with CRA's selection of sub locations saying they were indeed marginalized basing on the knowledge and experience of the region.

The Constitution 2010 requires that County Equalization Fund Committee be chaired by the County Commissioner. It is the committee that facilitates the provision of basic services identified by the stakeholders who work in close collaboration for the benefit of residents.
