In a proactive move towards transparent governance, the county government of Trans Nzoia held a consultative meeting on Monday at the West Side Hotel in Kitale. The focal point of the discussion was the County Fiscal Strategy Paper (CFSP) for the upcoming financial year 2024/2025.

The assembly brought together a diverse array of participants, including county officials, Members of the County Assembly (MCAs) from the budget committee, representatives from the County Trade department, members of the Trans Nzoia County Budget and Economic Forum (CBEF), and various stakeholders invested in the county’s development.

Addressing the gathering, Boniface Wanyonyi, County Executive Committee (CEC) Member for Finance, emphasized the pivotal role of the CFSP exercise in shaping the allocation of financial resources in the coming year. He underlined the significance of this collaborative effort, allowing stakeholders to actively propose sectoral budget allocations that resonate with the evolving needs of the community.

“This exercise will give direction on how money will be utilized in the next financial year,” stated Wanyonyi. “Stakeholders will propose sector ceilings, ensuring that development projects and other programs are aligned to residents’ needs.”

The Finance Chief Officer, Emmanuel Masungo, echoed the sentiment, emphasizing the importance of incorporating diverse perspectives into the budget formulation process. He stressed the need to capture views from various stakeholders, ensuring that the resulting budget is representative and inclusive.

“We need to get views and proposals from various organizations and stakeholders,” Masungo affirmed. “The views given should represent the concerned stakeholders, and the development priorities should touch on various spheres of the county.”

This community-engaged approach to budget formulation aligns with the principles of good governance, ensuring that the financial allocations resonate with the actual needs and aspirations of the residents. The collaborative effort signifies a commitment to transparent and people-centric governance in Trans Nzoia County.
