Vihiga County Governor Moses Akaranga has condemned plans of the senate to put tough laws to limit the county governments’ spending.

He said that such senators have failed in their responsibility, stating that they are supposed to work with the governors in various counties in the Country and discuss the best way forward.

Akaranga added that the last meeting that they had with the senators they were told that the distribution of revenue in the counties should be increased from 15% to 45% of the revenue from the national government.

The Governor said that before senators control the expenditure in the counties they should ensure that counties get the 45% revenue distribution from the national government.

He added that such senators are shortsighted which might end up frustrating the operations in the county government, but said they are soon having a Governors meeting to deliberate upon it.

Akaranga was speaking while unveiling the names of the Ward Administrators in the County at Mbale.

He called upon the ward administrators to remain disciplined and serve the community diligently to foster development in the County. The following is the list of the ward administrators as released by the Governor:
