...The Wajir County spent Ksh 6 billion in 2015-2016, out of which 32 per cent was spent on social sector.The drop in overall budget and execution in 2015-2016 in comparison to2014-2015 needs to be reviewed by the county government. The county is suffering from poor nutrition and sanitation status and it is suggested to include specific programmatic budget lines under health sector to ensure proper tracking and prioritization of such investments.From 2013-2014 to 2015-2016, the budget allocation in the Education sector has increased, but still enrollment rates are very low.The study suggests that the county should work on improving perennial issues like socio-cultural barriers etc.It is worthy to note that the county has allocated budget for gender promotion and culture & social services. However the study could not track countys allocation to social protection and child related services, due to lack of specific budget lines.Over the year, the county has allocated increasing budget for new infrastructure development under water sector. However it has been noted that county didnt provide credible data to water services regulatory board for performance review and hence this study couldnt analyze the impact of increasing expenditure on key water indicators.
