...The County realized cumulative total revenue amounting to Ksh. 1.0 Billion against total budget estimated revenue of Ksh. 5.4 Billion representing 20% level of revenue realization. This is far below the targeted 25% by end of first quarter of Ksh. 1.3 Billion translating to projected revenue deficit of Ksh. 0.3 Billion. The County experienced delay by National Exchequer in release of equitable share allocation of revenue with cumulative disbursement of Ksh. 0.4 Billion, approximately 15% vis-a-vis expected release of 25% or about Ksh.0.9 Billion hence deficit of Ksh. 0.5 Billion. Further there has been delay in release of conditional grants including money youth polytechnic development funds and world bank loan to supplement health budget not yet received by end of quarter two. The local revenue also reported decimal performance with accumulated revenue realised amounting to Ksh. 45 Million representing 15% performance level. The trend indicate possible deficit in revenue collection and hence several austerity measures will also be implemented to cut on non essential expenditures.
