Nairobi County Assembly MCAs will now get their car loans and mortgages after the city assembly approved Governor Sakaja’s supplementary budget.
The Assembly were recalled from recess for a special sitting to discuss supplementary budget estimates for the financial year 2022/2023.
The Estimates had been tabled at a special sitting of the House on Tuesday, January 17, 2023 by the Leader of Minority, Waithaka Ward MCA Anthony Kiragu.
The house approved the supplementary budget estimates and the Supplementary Appropriation Bill, to jump start operations in the county government, which have stagnated since August last year due to financial constraints.
“We have managed to realign the budget with the governors’ manifesto for the people of Nairobi. MCAa will now Members will be able to get car loans and mortgages,” said Budget and appropriations committee chair Wilfred Odalo.
He added that the county will now embark on the clearance of pending bills to contractors as the county ramps up revenue collection measures.
“We have realigned everything to governor’s manifesto we have reduced the publication period from seven days to one day. As you’re aware this is the peak period for receiving local revenue like the rates. We have reduced the collection period from 7 days to one so that Kenyans can realise the benefit of their money,” added Odalo
