MCAs agree to revise budget estimates to unlock stalemate

Meru County Assembly has approved the Budget after a series of disputes.

The Finance and Appropriations Bill, which was thrown into disarray got back on track after MCAs reached consensus on allocations to their wards.

They unanimously approved amendments after members who felt projects in their wards were allocated inadequate funds, resolved to amend the disputed fiscal estimates.

On Wednesday, they debated until nightfall and continued on Thursday.

Nkomo MCA John Ethaiba urged his colleagues to dialogue to avoid delaying passage of the budget as that would paralyse county operations.
