Why Nyong’o is cutting development budget this year

Kisumu County Government will minimize development projects in the 2022/2023 Financial Year.

The government will however concentrate on clearing pending bills.

Outgoing Assembly Speaker Elisha Oraro made the announcement, saying pending bills were taking toll of the county finances.

I want to appeal to the public, that this Financial Year, you may not be able to see a lot of development projects, reason being, we have agreed as an assembly that we must put the past to the past

Elisha Oraro

“This Financial Year, what we have discussed as an assembly and the executive, is that we are going to give priority to the workers in terms of anything called statutory deductions which have not been remitted must be remitted,” said Oraro.

“I want to appeal to the public, that this Financial Year, you may not be able to see a lot of development projects, reason being, we have agreed as an assembly that we must put the past to the past,” he said.

Oraro was speaking on Friday during the awarding of appointment letters to Early Childhood Development (EDC) Education teachers.

According to Oraro, the Governor has spent his first term building structures, and that he deserves a second term so as to complete the structures he started to build.

“You are not supposed to be worried about your deductions, they are in safe hands, and the structures that the Governor is making will remain forever,” he said.
