Devolution ministry cautions governors over congratulatory messages to Ruto.
In a letter on Wednesday 7th, Julius Korir, principal devolution ministry cautions governors over congratulatory messages to the president elect.
Korir further called on the county government to stop adverts and get back to work.
He said,”It is the intention of the new administration to give Kenyans value for their money. In line with advice from the President-elect, the congratulatory adverts are hereby discouraged with immediate effect.”
Korir also warned against misuse of fund set up for devolution referring it as violation of public financial act.
He said,”Chapter 12 (201) (d) highlights that public money shall be used in a prudent and responsible way. Further, the Act (No. 18 of 2012) advocates for effective management and expenditure of public funds by both levels of government.”
Korir further urged the governors to desist from wastage of resources and focus the money to other projects that will benefit their people.
He said,”Counties are further encouraged to cut on wastage as some resources can be used to provide essential services to Kenyans, in line with their priorities, in projects that impact their lives.”
