City Hall has received more than Sh415 million in a conditional grant to rehabilitate roads in Nairobi.
The grant from the Kenya Roads Board is part of the funds that are released to counties annually.
The 2018 County Allocation of Revenue and the 2012 Public Finance Management Acts mandate the State agency to release funds to counties governments.
For Nairobi, the money was to be released in the financial year that ended on June 30 but it delayed because the devolved government had not complied with the requirements.
“The funds are to be accounted for in accordance with the requirements of the KRB Act. You are required to use the funds in line with the 2018/19 approved financial year work plan submitted to the board,” KRB Executive Director, Jacob Ruwa, said in a letter to Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko.
The county boss said his administration would dedicate the cash to the maintenance of roads and building of feeder roads in the 85 wards.
Some of the roads being upgraded include Salim in Dagoreti, Karen Rich, Likoni link, Jadong, Musimbi and Ngarara.
The others are Gathuru in Kawangware, Thi’ongo in Mountain View, Mama Wahu in Ngando and Daraja Road.
