Nairobi County Assembly MCAs have been forced to reallocate funds meant for construction of their offices to car grants.
In the supplementary budget presented yesterday by Budget Committee chairman Robert Mbatia, County assembly service board slashed Ksh. 500 Million development expenditure.
They also sliced Ksh. 19.7 Million shillings for committees’ quarterly retreats and Ksh. 17 million for County Assembly Sports Association.
“We urge to be understood the media should be friendly with us …I want to state that we have forgone the luxury of having offices to go and get the car grants Mr. speaker so that we probably can again prioritize offices later Mr .speaker,” Mbatia told the House.
The car grants were used as a sweetener by President Uhuru Kenyatta for them to pass the Building Bridges Initiative Bill 2020.
