(KDRTV) – Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja should be celebrating after his county was awarded the largest share of the Ksh 53B pledged by President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday.

Senate has unanimously voted to adopt the revenue sharing formula for counties. All the 41 delegations present in the house on Thursday voted yes for the formula which will see no county lose funds. A win-win formula, they said.

Nairobi is the biggest beneficiary of the new formula having been allocated Ksh 3.3 Billion more, pushing its allocation for the next Financial Year to Ksh 19B.

Sakaja has been criticized in the past for opposing the previous formula despite Nairobi gaining funds. The Super Senator claimed that there is no way he would support a formula that would see other counties lose funds for Nairobi to gain.

President Uhuru Kenyatta is among the leaders who castigated the youthful lawmaker but Sakaja stood his ground and it seems his efforts have now paid off.

Nakuru (Ksh 2.5B), Kiambu (Ksh 2.2B), Turkana (Ksh 2B) and Kakamega (Ksh 1.9B) complete the top five biggest gainers in the new formula.
