Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro insisted that the formula will balance inequalities that are currently experienced in revenue sharing.

Ndindi noted that residents of Kiharu receive far less per capita revenue as compared to areas with a sparse population.

“The average per capita revenue is Sh. 7, 400 per Kenyan yet in areas like Lamu County, each resident receives Sh. 18,000 per capita revenue,” Ndindi said.

The discrepancy, he noted, could see less populated counties develop far more than heavily populated counties.

The MP said he receives at least 20,000 bursary applications yet his constituency receives the same amount of funds with others that get a few thousands.

“This means that while I give Sh. 3,000 per student, they are able to comfortably sponsor students from primary schools up to the doctorate levels,” he added.

Ndindi who was speaking while inspecting Githioro Ndutumi Ndaraca-ini road on Monday further noted that an average poor person in the North Eastern areas has acres of land and hundreds of livestock as compared to the Central region where land is unavailable while population is high.

“It is people who queue to pay tax and cast votes and the same should apply during allocation of revenue,” the MP said.
