    County chiefs have shut down operation in devolved units over lack of funds.

    Chair of the Council of Governors Wycliffe Oparanya in a statement said because of the ongoing stalemate on the funds’ flow, the county government will shut down and suspend all non-essential services.

    “All non-essential services are hereby suspended and county employees are advised to proceed on leave for two weeks,” Oparanya said on Tuesday.

    The Kakamega governor pointed out that the public hospital will not offer inpatient services but will give minimal outpatient care.

    A week ago, Governor Oparanya warned that the services at the county government will be unavailable as all county employees will be sent on unpaid leave until an amicable solution on the revenue sharing formula is reached.

    Oparanya said the beloved units are going through rough times and are unable to effectively perform their functions and undertake general operations such as the implementation of development projects and payment of salaries to their staff.

    “We express our discontent with Senate’s failure to build consensus on the third generation formula which has consequently delayed the approval of the County Allocation of Revenue Act, 2020. This is tantamount to killing devolution similar to what happened in 1964,” Oparanya said.
