JANE KIRINGAI, NEW CRA CHAIRPERSON

Jane Kiringai is the new Commission of Revenue Allocation Chair. She was formerly a senior economist at the World Bank. She was head-hunted by President Uhuru Kenyatta. Jane replaced the former CRA chair Mr. Micah Cheserem.

The previous commission served up to December, 2016. Jane has a lot of work waiting for her. This includes creating accurate date to guide resource allocation in Kenya. Public finance experts have always criticized the way resources are shared based on unreliable data. This is especially the case when it comes to equal share in the CRA formula.

The Commission on Revenue Allocation has in the past found it a challenge to convince treasury to allocate more funds to the 47 counties.

Below is a list of other members of the CRA:

  • Kamau Thugge
  • Edward Akong’o Oyugi
  • Peter Kiko Kimuyu
  • Peter Njeru Gachuba
  • Fauza Abdikadir Dahir
  • Kishanto Ole Suuji
  • Humphrey Wattanga
  • Irene C. Koech Asienga

Below is a video link to Jane’s previous work at World Bank in the Kenya Office.
