Dr. Ruto ,at his Sugoi home in Uasin Gishu County addressed a delegation of elders and leaders from Bungoma and Trans Nzoia Counties on Friday.
He urged the Senate team to crop up with a WIN-WIN formula for revenue allocation to resolve the standoff.The revenue allocation formula arrived at should not divide the country.
“Because it is a constitutional requirement that we review formula in this point of time, we must ensure we move the country together. The populous counties, like Uasin Gishu, Nandi, Kiambu, Nyeri, Siaya, Kakamega, Kisumu, among others to get additional resources.
“But also we must be careful to ensure that small counties like Vihiga, Tharaka Nithi, Isiolo, Tana River because of size they should not suffer in the allocation of resources because we haven’t taken into account certain parameters,” he said.
The second in command believes that the Senate has the requisite leadership and wisdom to come up with a formula ‘that takes into can account all the parameters and ensures that a populous counties have additional resources’.
He said that sparsely populated counties should get their fair share to avoid stagnation of development projects.
