County tenderpreneurs may have to wait for the row between auditor general and controller of budgets with the Public Accounts Committee(PAC) settle before treasury issuing the debts.

Auditor General Edward Ouko special audit has revealed that pending bills in the counties amounting to Sh57.12 billion for 2018/2019 financial year are fake and therefore ineligible for payment. The top county awaiting to pay is Nairobi with 21Billion.


The audit shows that just about Sh51.28 billion out of the general figure of Sh108.41 pending bills in counties are genuine and worth being settled.


The public accounts committee wants the controller of budget Agness Odhiambo and Auditor general Edward Ouko to explain how they reached to that figure keeping in mind devolved units should not be affected.
