Kidero has never sent us his demand for Sh62 billion – Treasury

Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich has asked Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero to send to his office the Sh62 billion bill he says has not been paid to City Hall by the national government.

Mr Rotich was speaking on Wednesday at the fifth conference of constitutional commissions and independent offices happening at City Hall.

“You know I have not really seen the bill Dr Kidero is talking about. He should send it to my office and we’d see how to deal with it,” Mr Rotich said.

The CS was responding to a request by Commission on Revenue Allocation (CRA) chair Micah Cheserem.

“And as he comes to speak, I want CS Rotich to tell us why he owes Dr Kidero a lot of money,” Mr Cheserem said as he invited the Mr Rotich.

Dr Kidero has claimed that the national government has defaulted and had failed to pay the money over the years.

The governor has since asked the Senate to help the county recover the money.
