Governor Charity Ngilu has called on all leaders to create their own county source revenues instead of depending on inter-governmental transfers.
The Governor was speaking Thursday morning during a radio interview with Radio Citizen in Nairobi.
“We can’t be depending on the National Government all the time, we should find ways of creating our revenue,” she said.
According to Ngilu, every County is capable of creating their own money, considering that they have all the factors of production.
Ngilu further revealed the County Government’s commitment to actualizing President Uhuru Kenyatta’s manufacturing agenda noting that the County Government has already established manufacturing plants among them the Kitui County Textile Centre( KICOTEC), Kitui Pharma, Kitui Foods, Kitui Leather, the Kitui Youth Development Centre, ( KICOYDEC) among others.
She also revealed how the Kitui- Kibwezi road will be a major boost in actualizing Kitui’s manufacturing journey by opening up the county for business
