Nairobi, KENYA: Newly elected COG chair Wycliffe Oparanya has put the treasury on notice following the delay of funds to counties urging the institution to rectify the mess or else things will not be as usual.
Oparanya made the announcement on Monday after triumphing and taking over from his predecessor Turkana Governor Josephat Nanok.
Oparanya complained that delay of funds has adversely affected the counties performance.
On the other hand, speaker of the Senate Ken Lusaka urged the county governments to address the issue of pending bills in their counties in a bid to enhance development.
Lusaka urged the county government to uphold accountability after receiving funds from the national government in order to propel transparency in service delivery.
Outgoing COG chair Nanok blasted the national assembly for failing to pass bill linked to retirement packages to county employees which were supposed to be factored in time.
He also faulted treasury for continual delaying counties funds which have ultimately grounded service delivery at the county level.
