As you can see, less money will be spent on FY 2019/2020 budget as compared to the current one.

If nothing is done, the budget for all social sectors, i.e. education, health, lands and housing will receive budget cuts. This is bad for the ordinary residents of Kisumu County.

We are running a series of blog articles as our contribution towards civic education to inform proper public participation.
