KIRINYAGA County: Court Orders Speaker, CoB Not To Authorize Transactions

Justice Weldon Korir has ordered the Speaker of the Kirinyaga County Assembly not to authorize any withdrawal from the county revenue fund following a petition challenging the Kirinyaga County Appropriation Bill, which according to the petitioner was illegally prepared and approved by the county assembly.

Justice Korir has also ordered the Controller of Budget to halt all transactions through the Integrated Financial Management System.

The move has given the Governor a chance to reverse amendments made by the assembly on the proposed budget.

The case will be heard on August 12, 2020.
