WHAT SAKAJA IS SAYING IS THAT HE HAS A FORMULAE WHERE NO COUNTY IN KENYA WILL LOSE MONEY. THAT ALL COUNTIES WILL BE THE SAME AND GET SIMILAR REVENUE ALLOCATIONS. THAT IS A FALLACY

You do not to be a rocket scientist to know that the mantra of ‘no county will lose’ is as false as the contents of his calculations that Sakaja presented in the senate. Even the Bible does not teach on equality. It teaches on Equity. Equity is diffrent from Equality. Bible says, “He who has.. more shall be added unto him. And him who has not, even the little he has shall be taken away from him.” My Kakamega county which is the 3rd most populous county in Kenya cannot get a similar revenue allocation like Wajir whose population is not even a quarter of Kakamega. There has to be a difference.

 

Even if we to leave the expired second basis formula in play the parameter on population will necessary mean that based on the census 2019 this will obviously cause the 18 ‘losing’ counties to lose. That’s why the Somali counties in NEP have already rushed to court to challenge the 2019 census. They know that Census was not an exercise in futility.

What Sakaja wants:
1. Freeze matters in time.
2. Ignore the 2019 census.
3. Keep allocated numbers static and absolute.

Then next year when new monies arrive we kick in the new formula which includes the 2019 census but always keeping past allocations static and absolute.
CONCLUSION
Sakaja wants that we divide the national cake of 319b equally like some socialist or communist state. Sakaja himself as Senator of Nairobi did not tell us at which stakeholder forum within Nairobi did he invite opinions and therefore came to conclusions on the type of amendment to propose on behalf of Nairobians.

Sakaja brought his amendment as Sakaja and we shall direct all our criticisms at one Sakaja unless he wants to buffer himself by telling us who else he represents.

‘No county shall loose is voodoo economics’
