Sonko rejects Nairobi City County Appropriation Bill, 2020 over Sh5.8b deficit
Governor Mike Sonko has rejected the Sh37.7 billion Nairobi City County Appropriation Bill 2020 just a week after the county assembly amended it. The governor sent back the Bill to the county assembly with a memorandum citing a Sh5.8b deficit that could "paralyse the operations of the entire programs". In the memorandum, Sonko quotes a Sh200 million slash from Disaster Management and Coordination, leaving an amount not enough to pay the fire department's salaries. Other areas with fund deductions are the Public Financial Management, which has lost Sh1 billion and Urban Agricultural Promotion and Regulation which has lost Sh70 million.
