Education sector is the biggest beneficiary in this year’s Ksh. 39.63 Billion Nairobi County 2020/2021.
The sector has been allocated Ksh. 1.3 billion to boost infrastructure and to hire Early Childhood Development and Education.
According to Finance CEC Allan Igambi they have set aside another Ksh.420 Million shillings for bursaries.
‘‘However, we concur that a lot more needs to be done to maintain and better our standards. We will therefore focus on hiring and training of more ECDE teachers to match the increased number of pupils, improving and expanding existing training infrastructure as well as integrating ICT in curriculum delivery, Kshs. 1.3 Billion has been allocated for this purpose,’’ Igambi told MCAs.
The county government now plans to tighten parking and betting streams to fund the huge budget.
Nairobi Metropolitan Services will receive Ksh. 19.2 Billion and the rest of its budget will come from National Government.
‘‘Towards this end, and to ensure implementation of priorities of the transferred functions, I have proposed an allocation of Kshs. 19.2 Billion to the Nairobi Metropolitan Services for the transferred functions. The National Government is expected to fill any resource gaps to NMS from the Consolidated Fund in line with the Deed of transfers,’’ he added.
