Parliament Approves Sh2.9 Billion Allocation for CDF


Kenya’s Parliament has approved an allocation of Sh2.9 billion ($26 million) for the National Government Constituency Development Fund (NG-CDF) to be distributed among the country’s 290 constituencies.

Each constituency will receive Sh10 million, which will help settle all arrears dating back to the 2022 financial year.

The funds were included in the First Supplementary Budget of 2022/23, presented in the National Assembly after months of protests.

National Assembly Majority Leader Kimani Ichung’wah urged MPs to ensure that the Constituency Development Committees use the money according to the law and to allocate resources to support vulnerable children who cannot pay fees and to transition 100% of students to secondary school.

Last month, MPs protested the delay in disbursing the funds, which caused the passage of the Supplementary budget to be held up, with the National Treasury holding onto billions.

After a meeting with National Treasury officials and President William Ruto, the impasse was resolved, and the exchequer has since released Sh10 billion to the constituency fund kitty.
