ODM leader Raila Odinga rejects the disputed third revenue sharing formula but instead says no county should lose funds.

He added that he was consulted when he was still sick -immediately after landing from Dubai.

Raila on Wednesday said he did not have all the details on the CRA third basis formula so he did not understand the contents on what the Senators were voting for in the Senate.

"When I first wrote the statement, I had just come back from (treatment in) Dubai," he said during an interview with NTV.

He said he was not aware that the report by the Commission on Revenue Allocation (CRA) had been changed by the parliamentary budget committee.

He urged the senate to find a more convenient formula that will suit all counties equally, meanwhile reject the current state formula.

"It should not be a win-win situation," he said.
He had on Sunday engaged with Jubilee leaders to address the third basis revenue sharing formula.

They held a meeting at COTU SG Francis Atwoli’s home in Kajiado County.

The approval of the formula proposed by the CRA prioritizes population.

On Monday, the CRA offered technical support to fix the deadlock.

The commission's support for recommending the third basis formula was prefaced on the idea that counties whose allocations were to sink by more than five per cent would be recompensed by an increase in their equitable share allocation.
