The meeting brings together senior national and county government officials to deliberate on the budgetary allocation for the counties.

According to the DP, the extra funds will be used for post COVID-19 recovery and also enhance service delivery.

Counties were represented by Governors and their CECs.

This was the first highlevel meeting that the DP has hosted in recent times, coming amid allegations that he has been sidelined by the Jubilee Government with senior government officials among them Cabinet Secretaries rebuking him in public.

Last year, the DP missed critical government events among them, the National Security Council meetings, where he is a member.
