Raila asks Senate to pass CRA recommendations

ODM Party leader Raila Odinga has asked the Senate to pass the recommendation by the Commission for Revenue Allocation (CRA).

He said it was time the current stalemate was resolved so as to allow the country to move forward and focus on tackling the COVID-19 pandemic.

He added that the concerns currently being raised by Senators opposing the proposed revenue formulae should instead be forwarded to the CRA for consideration in its future recommendation.

“The Senate should now allow the country to move forward by adopting the CRA report while using the concerns voiced for future recommendations on revenue sharing,” Mr. Odinga said in a statement.

He said the concerns raised by the Senate should be forwarded to the CRA for consideration so as to avert a similar stand-off in future.
