This morning I have assented to the Appropriation Act 2015 of the County Budget Estimates for the Financial Year 2015/2016 and projected estimates for the Financial Year 2016/2017 and 2017/2018.
This year’s total budget is Ksh.10.9B and has Ksh. 5.7B allocated to development expenditure with the remaining Ksh.5.2B going to recurrent expenditure.
True to our commitment to avail clean water to all households, achieve food security and provide world-class healthcare to our people, Ksh2.4B representing 23% of the total budget has been allocated to Water and Irrigation. The second highest allocation, Ksh. 2.2B (20%) has been given to Health and Emergency Services.
I am grateful to the Machakos County Assembly for their continued support and cooperation.
