WESTERN YOUTH COUNCIL
STATEMENT ON THE NEW CRA BILL
Western Youth Council would like to express its unreserved support for the new CRA Bill that addresses the discrepancies in revenue allocation that Western Region been subjected to in the past 7 years.
Based on the old CRA formula, Mandera County has been receiving more funds than Bungoma County, which has twice the population as the former.
Tana River County has been receiving more funds than Trans Nzoia, which has twice the population as the former.
Wajir County has been receiving more funds than Meru that has twice the population as the former.
The Council urges all leaders from Western to support the amendments since the new bill will provide more funds to our highly populated and underdeveloped region.
As the CRA formula is reviewed, the Council also urges national political leaders to objectively re-look at the CDF Act with a view of ensuring equitable distribution of CDF funds.
