Deputy Speaker Farah Maalim asked the Energy and Constituency Development Fund committees to find the reasons behind the decline.
He said the Roads minister had not reduced funding for constituency roads through the Kenya Rural Roads Authority since 2008.
He was responding to a question by Mumias MP Ben Washiali. Washiali asked the ministry to consider allocating more funds to constituencies that experience heavy rains such as Mumias.
The Mumias MP noted the allocations were on a decrease contrary to the Machage’s stand that the ministry had not reduced the amounts.
“The figure has dropped from Sh27 million in 2009 to Sh20 million in the last financial year,” said Washiali.
Machage told the House the Kenya Revenue Authority had collected more money when allocations to the constituencies were high.
Gwasi MP John Mbadi complained the amount had reduced by about Sh7 million over the three years yet fuel prices never dropped during the period. He asked the Government to explain why there has been a decrease in fuel levy collection.
