NFD leaders oppose the proposed revenue allocation formula
Leaders from NFD Counties have come out strongly to oppose the new formula on sharing of revenues to Counties prolosed by the Commission of Revenue Allocation (CRA). The leaders led by Governor Ali Roba of Mandera said the proposal will have them lose a combined Ksh. 10bn if the government adopts it.
The new formula will be based on population and CRA wants to allocate about 70% of revenue on that basis. The leaders are arguing that NFD Counties need more resources to ensure they become at par with other Counties.
