“Following the collapse of mediation of the Division of Revenue Bill between the National Assembly and the Senate, it is apparent that County Governments will be unable to pay salaries and service providers in good time as monies will not be disbursed by the National Treasury,” Said Oparanya.
The Kakamega County boss urged financial institution to bear with county staffs as he predicts tough time a head. He urged banks not to penalize staffs who will fail to repay their loans in time.
“We wish to alert all unions, Private Sector, Citizens, who receive services from County governments and employees in the County Governments to note that the times ahead will be tough”.
