CRA urges for prudent management of development funds 

The Commission on Revenue Allocation (CRA) has urged Trans Nzoia County Government to ensure prudent management of funds set aside for development projects. 

CRA Vice Chairperson Mr. Koitamet Olekina made the remark in Kitale Town during an impact assessment meeting with County officers led by Governor George Natembeya on Thursday.

An evaluation team from the Commission’s headquarters had been in the County for three days to assess to progress of several projects initiated by the devolved unit within the last six months.

“My team has concluded a three days’ evaluation of the development projects and programmes fully funded by the county administration within the last six months. We have traversed the whole county,” said Olekina.

“Our report contains a mixture of bags. However, we are pleased to note most of the projects funded by the devolved unit are in the right trajectory. Only very few might call for readjustments so that the end products will add envisioned value to the citizens who are the chief beneficiaries,” noted Olekina. 

According to the Vice Chair, the Commission was keen on assessment of progress and impact of service delivery for key sector development projects, including education, health, urban planning, roads, agriculture and water.

 Olekina cited ongoing works at Masinde Muliro ultra-modern market, construction of Early Childhood Development Education classrooms and rehabilitation of several roads across the county as some of the best managed projects by the current county administration.

“Overall, Trans Nzoia County administration has done exceptionally well in the last six months,” observed Olekina. 

Governor Natembeya welcomed the report and promised his commitment towards working on its recommendations.

“As a County government, we are committed to delivering on the promises we made during the campaigns. That I promise my people of good government and service delivery,” stated the Governor. 

 County Secretary Truphosa Amere, County Executive Committee Members Bonfas Wanyonyi (Finance), Jackson Amboka (Roads), Janerose Mutama (Lands), Sam Ojwang (Education), and Patrick Gacheru (Environment) also attended the meeting.
