The Supreme Court ordered the Senate to conduct an audit of county government expenditures and to call in the relevant governors to account for their spending.
The Supreme Court also mandated that county governors account for all county revenues, including tax money and charitable contributions.
Senators will be presented with documentation detailing the transfer of funds from the national govt to county governments.
Speaker Amason Kingi and Deputy Speaker Murungi Kathuri of the Senate have been tasked with monitoring the expenditure of public funds and the behavior of governors to guarantee that this money is used in accordance with the approved budget.
Tender allocations, contractors, “ghost workers,” and faulty revenue collection systems are just a few of the ways county monies be stolen or misspent.
The Senate will have last say over any issue pertaining to the county, including but not limited to the governor’s budget and spending plans.
Lawmaking, budgetary matters, and impeachment of governors are all primarily the purview of the Senate.
County governors have been blamed in the past for the underdevelopment of their regions because of the theft of county monies.
