Delay by the National Assembly in approving county government audited accounts as tabled by the Office of the Auditor General is undermining equitable division of revenue. According to the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Kenya, ICPAK, the government is relying on outdated audited accounts as the basis for revenue sharing, something it says hampers equitable allocation of resources. Article 203 of the Constitution provides that the amount allocated to county governments will be based on the most recent audited accounts received and approved by the National Assembly. This happens even as the proposed third revenue sharing formula has been tabled before Parliament for consideration.
