This has been occasioned by challenges related to logistics of closure and opening of financial year,” read a memo to the staff. The delay in passing the budget has been criticised by local leaders, among them Nyandarua County assembly speaker, Ndegwa Wahome, and Woman Representative Faith Gitau. Mr Wahome termed the delay as serious, saying the budget should have been tabled long ago. He said the delay was unfortunate since it would affect the operations of the county government. “The budget-making process has timelines, which the executive has failed to follow,” he said.
