The Council of Governors (CoG) now uphold their warning to shut down county operations. 


 

They say no county staff will be allowed in their offices as already some owe over three months salary characterized by the revenue allocation deadlock.


In a memo to all governors, the CoG chairperson Wycliffe Oparanya ordered his colleagues to send county employees home on a two-week leave as well as suspend non-essential services until further notice. 



He also added that the two weeks will also be extended if the situation is not solved as early as possible.


Oparanya also asked county government health facilities not to admit new patients as the council maintained on pushing for a speedy release of funds. 



"The Senate has still not been able to unlock the stalemate on the flow of funds. It is therefore not clear when it will be resolved. In this regard, all the county governments are advised to issue necessary notices," said the Kakamega governor.
