Seventy per cent of Nakuru County’s next financial year's budget will be spent on recurrent expenditure while the rest will go towards development. 

This is according to the 2020/2021 Fiscal Strategy paper tabled at the County Assembly.

"After reviewing the paper, we shall subject the budget to public participation after which it shall be returned to the Assembly for approval. We are determined to have the budget passed within the constitutional timelines," Mr Karuri said.
